JASMINE VASANDANI
 

I’m a data scientist, business strategist, & researcher.

I’m a data scientist with experience in startups, policy, and strategy. A common thread in my experience is my commitment to serving the greater good, whether it be through the projects I work on or how I interact with my team. What I enjoy the most about being a data scientist is having the tools to unveil compelling narratives from data. Some things that keep me up at night are the notions that math is the language of the universe, that data is everywhere, and that everyone has a story to tell.

What I’m doing right now:

Tl;dr My work highlights.

 
 

Data Science

After teaching myself Python and meeting other data scientists, I decided to specialize in data science. I’m very active in data communities and love talking to people about data!

 

Business Ownership

I co-founded a business when I was 19 years old, which I managed for five years. The second business I co-founded launched while I was a fellow at a design and technology incubator in New York.

 
 

Publications

I’ve written three public reports for a multi-million dollar initiative for the City of New York. Currently, I’m also writing a series of evaluation reports for a business accelerator.

 

Arts (& Data)

I spent several years working for arts institutions in India. Some highlights include working on Yoko Ono’s first solo exhibition in India, and creating classification systems for two art libraries.
