The idea here is that by doing good bookkeeping you have good data that you can use to analyze your financial life. Specifically, we look at how big your emergency fund ought to be.
As it is still 2020, and the COVID-19 Pandemic is still raging as I type this I wanted to write an article, there is much talk about looking for a vaccine. Let me put my click-baity title to rest right off the bat. I think that we should develop a vaccine, and that I, personally,… Continue reading Why I’m Not Going To Take the Corona Virus Vaccine And You Shouldn’t Either!
So I started to put together my family’s finances recently. I thought about using some fintech solution. Ultimately, in my data nerdliness, I landed on using double-entry accrual accounting principles to look at my finances through. At first, I thought to myself, “I should use some fintech account aggregator”; but then I thought, “Wait, they… Continue reading Double-Entry Accrual Accounting for Personal Finance
Anyone who has taken a slightly rigorous statistics class will have bumped into these probability distributions before. What I want to focus on is giving an overview of each of these probability distributions, when they are useful, and what you can do with them with some real life examples. This post is meant to be… Continue reading The 7 Most Common Discrete Probability Distributions
Covid-19 has really shaped our world in ways that I wouldn’t have expected just 6 months ago, which feels like a lifetime ago. I personally have been hiding out my garage for the past few months. Time seems to have both sped up and slowed down simultaneously. Covid-19 has changed the landscape for data professionals… Continue reading 4 Data Strategies for Companies in a Post-Covid World

It feels like it has been forever since I had this idea. And now, here it is! It is Skinnier… Continue reading Data Science and Weight Loss

As someone trained in econometrics, as any one can tell you, the key thing that you should be concerned with is causality. We are often worried not about correlations; correlations lie. We want to get at causality. Causality is… Continue reading Causality, a Brief Note
As you may know from last week I have been thinking about stochastic differential equations (SDEs) recently. As such, one of the things that I wanted to do was to build some solvers for SDEs. One good reason for solving these SDEs numerically is that there is (in general) no analytical solutions to most SDEs.… Continue reading Solving Stochastic Differential Equations in Python
