Vivek Bansal Data Engineer

My Expertise

Hacking. Mapping. Doing my part.

Data Nerd

I'm a data nerd! I started out studying insurance mathematics and economics but became enthralled to the dynamic world of big data, statistics, and machine learning. I have solid experience in R, Python/Pandas, GIS, and many flavors of databases.


I enjoy coding and building systems from backend scripting to web development. My design and coding philosophy is to find the simplest solution and be Agile in implementation.


I'm usually doing too much. In my spare time I'm Co-Captain of Code for San Jose, a space for the civic tech community to meet and innovate. I'm also passionate about OpenStreetMap.
