Analyst at Wayfair (Workforce Management - Forecasting & Analytics)

Wayfair, Inc.


I am an analyst at Wayfair, Inc., working within the Forecasting Analytics team within the larger Workforce Management group. In the past I’ve worked as an independent researcher with both the Stella Riparian and Stream Ecology and Yanai Forest Ecosystem Science laboratories, as well as the Beaver Impact Assessment intern for the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. In all of these roles I’ve worked to apply data science techniques to large-scale challenges, frequently serving as the statistical and technical expert within my team.

My past projects have included assessing the landscape-level impacts of ecosystem engineers within New York’s Adirondack State Park, as well as investigating the impact of fertilization on beech bark disease within the White Mountains of New Hampshire. I’ve also written a primer on how to use R for data exploration and analysis in both scientific and business contexts.
