Oluwatamilore “Tamilore” Ajeigbe: harnessing data science to look at impact of race on STEM retention rates
Sept. 30, 2022

For her CSML independent work project, Ajeigbe decided to compare data from Predominantly White Institutions (PWIs) versus Historically Black College and Universities (HBCUs). She used pruned decision trees and OLS regression to uncover factors that would make a student more likely to stay in a STEM major and whether these factors changed depending on the institution, PWI or HBCU.

Written by Sharon Adarlo

For his master’s degree thesis, which also fulfilled requirements in the CSML graduate certificate, Sid Gupta compared the use of various machine learning methods to estimate probable volatility and prices for vanilla options, a type of financial derivative. In addition to neural networks, Gupta used decision tree-based ensemble models such as gradient boosted trees and random forests to estimate volatility. 

Jafar Howe: applying machine learning to analyze and detect different language accents
Aug. 1, 2022

For his independent project for CSML, Jafar Howe decided to develop an English language accent classifier, basically a tool to accurately detect different English accents. Howe did this by converting speech samples into a time-frequency spectrogram, a visual representation of audio.
