Featured Projects

COVID-19 Predictor

The COVID-19 Predictor spreads awareness of the severity of coronavirus by allowing users to estimate the total infected in their region in the near future. This is accomplished by allowing the user to choose their country and how far into the future they want to see, then fitting the growth rate of their region to an exponential function, and delivering an estimate of the number of infected in that region.

Beyond EVs: Electric Vehicle Data Analysis

The automotive industry is undergoing an electric revolution, as the world embraces the next generation of sustainable transportation. However, the availability of reliable electrical infrastructure is a major constraint for mainstream EV adoption. The UC Berkeley student team performed exploratory data analysis to figure out what variables were indicative of EV adoption rates year over year and used this data to train several statistical forecasting models, including linear regression and ARIMA.
