Rich Pauloo, PhD

Data Scientist

I spend most of my days writing code (mostly R, Python, SQL) to clean, visualize, and model data. I have a PhD in computational hydrogeology, where I simulated and visualized 3D contaminant transport in aquifers.

I love to surf 🏄‍, climb mountains 🧗🏼, tinker on bikes 🚴‍, read and learn new things 📚, play guitar 🎸, and cook 🧑‍🍳.
