Program / New York

Certified Data Analytics Practitioner

The CDAP Program is an intensive training offered in New York for people who want to transition careers into the fields of Data Science, Data Analytics, Business Analytics and Big Data Analytics. The CDAP Program is designed by long-time leaders in the data field, including executives from American Express, GE, McKinsey, Goldman Sachs, Vimeo, IBM and Pfizer as well as graduates from Harvard Business School, Columbia University, and Princeton University.

Why am I interested in data science and analytics?

My exciting of data science and analytics started from my National Tsing Hua University graduation project focused on the A Social Network-Based Recommender System. We use the methods of data mining to collect the user data. Secondly, we developed an algorithm for the social network manager to recommend the articles to the social network user. Our group got the award for excellent performance in final project competition. I had learned that Data Scientists are the people who make sense out of all this data and figure out just what can be done with it.

As a preventive healthcare project manager at Formosa Plastic Group.I conducted field studies and dealt with the optimization of user experience and information systems. I want to know more about data scientist and use information in a predictive and seamless way to enhance customer experience. Exposed data patterns and their insights back to an individual opens up a world of many new possibilities. Work closely with the client teams to generate ideas, diagnose problems, and provide information for business and product decisions by transforming enormous data sets into actionable information. This interdisciplinary aspect of the subject suits my abilities well.

 

Why Principal Analytics Prep Data Science Bootcamp Principal Analytics Prep ( original name: rSQUAREedge) ?

I want to apply to Data Science Bootcamp because want to transition careers into the fields of Data Analytics in the US. After I finished the Executive Data Science Specialization Certificate Authorized by Johns Hopkins University and offered through Coursera. I am looking forward to furthering my interest in Data Science and understand the needs of hiring managers.

I have performed well in data science and find it challenging to apply the knowledge to practical problems. I want to enhance my ability to build a product recommender system that does much more than just find similar products instant create a true innovation original application with Machine Learning. Moreover, Principal Analytics Prep provides mentorship and career guidance to students might help me build a successful career by giving resume feedback and counseling/resources required to crack interviews. I can meet and network with the potential employers in the information sessions.

E-commerce and Social Network has become increasingly attractive as a business model for the Internet of Things in the consumer space. The functional areas of business – design, marketing, and manufacturing - are highly information intensive. Being a data analyst can improve the accuracy of its ad targeting to recommending better products to appear on users’ homepages. Perform deep-dive analysis to identify opportunities to improve user engagement.

“Not only do the thing right but also do the right thing” goes one of my favorite sayings. I have an industrial engineering and user experience design background could inspire me to approach the data technical issue from a broader and more creative perspective.

Making the results real by making data available to users. This involves communicating the results effectively to both business and technical users in presentations. Lead the discussion and guide the integration of the data visualization layer with the underlying platform to best showcase the output of the data.

Project Management  / Formosa Plastics Group

Preventive Health Care OTT Platform

Formosa Plastics Group is the most prestigious medical organizations in Taiwan with over 100,000 employees and 7 hospitals. FPD is also Taiwan's largest private enterprise.I led strategic development and planning of official website platform in terms of UI/UX, MySQL database, A/B testing and related procedures, creating website prototype.

Team of 30+ people included doctors in Chang Gung Memorial Hospital , professors in Chang Gung University of Science and Technology (CGUST) and Formosa Biomedical Technology Corporation to ensure successful project execution by developing and managing time schedule, work allocation and business goals.

Research Analyst Assistant  / University of Singapore, Interactive & Digital Media Institute

IDMI aims to generate impactful research in IDM, and to transfer the ground-breaking technology that it produces to industry.  Keio-NUS CUTE (Connective Ubiquitous Technology and Embodiments) Center, jointly funded by Keio University, NUS and Media Development Authority (MDA).As a research assistant at CUTE center, I cooperate with researchers from various backgrounds and learn how to conduct user studies in innovative projects for better user interface development.

Industrial Engineering  / National Tsing Hua University

I majored in Industrial Engineering and Engineering Management (IEEM) in National Tsing Hua University (Hsintsu, Taiwan) during 2010-2014 and received my bachelor degree in the science and also finished the interdisciplinary program in Innovation Design Engineering.

After the college training, I went to Singapore to gain internship experience. As a research assistant now at the Connective Ubiquitous Technology for Embodiments (CUTE) Center in National Singapore University, I conduct user study and redesign of few projects. I am pursuing advanced knowledge and intellectual depth.

 At Tsing Hua, my learning in Innovation Design Engineering was fruitful with high performance. (Average scores A, including Product Design and Development, Interaction design, Intellectual Property Strategy and Management for Global Competition, Human Factor, and High-Tech Entrepreneurship).

In product design and development class, I was the team leader with different background teammates, and our team aimed to develop utensils that could help analyzing our food and detect the substance that may potentially harmful or toxins. We conducted user studies and reconsidered how to make detectors incorporated into the utensils, such as posting the information on the internet platform to build the feedback system. Potential users could, therefore, take food safer in their hands by using our technology.

Meanwhile, I accessed various companies and learned how to present concepts to venture capital investors in the entrepreneurship course. For example, we contacted with SONY product manager, Nielsen, Ogilvy and APPs development startup to define company needs. Our business model was to build a B2B environment which can test the customer behaviors by using user-friendly interaction interface so that the feedbacks can be received efficiently. Furthermore, decision-makers and designers could get correct customer behavior and preferences. I also completed the “Capital Requirements” for developing the strategy. Also, management training has equipped me with strict logical thinking and problem-solving skills. In the final presentation, the Venture Capital representative evaluated our business plan with the great comment.
