Bhishan Poudel, Ph.D. Candidate

Data Scientist

Linkedin GitHub twitter stackoverflow

I have Masters and Ph.D degree in Physics from Ohio University USA. As a masters student in 2014, I designed and maintained astronomical image processing tool called jedisim which taught me the concepts of OOP, GitHub version control, continuous integration, unit testing, code debugging, documentation (sphinx and readthedocs) and various other software development skills.

During my 6 years of Ph.D. program and doing multiple MOOC courses, to facilitate my day-to-day data science tasks, I developed my own python package (bp) which helps plotting dataframe columns , statistical analysis, time-series visualization, and other miscellaneous plots.

In my graduate level research, I worked on galaxy shear measurement project where given the image of galaxies I sought to determine ellipticity of the galaxy using various machine learning and deep learning techniques. I learned many statistical concepts, visualization tools, machine learning and deep-learning skills and applied them in my research (example report).
