He is a Research & Development Data Scientist, having worked as a Statistician, Data Analyst, Data Scientist, and Research Software Engineer in many different scientific projects, ranging from Geophysics research on the drying of the Sahel for NOAA, air pollution in Camden, NJ, sociological field work in Mumbai, gene-culture co-evolution meta-analysis, outcomes evaluation research on the most cost-effective treatments to heart-failure, and computational biology tools for phylogenetic analysis. In industry, over the course of 5.5 years, he worked as a Data Analytics & Technology Product Manager, growing a technology-skills company and developing scientific technology for research and intervention in the social epidemiology of the disease, mental illness, and violence. His academic training is as a Quantitative Political Scientist.

Justin graduated from Yale with a B.A. in Political Science, an inter-disciplinary specialization in the quantitative methodological differences between social and natural sciences, and a Thesis on the social physics of the functional dynamics of reflexive democratic communication processes. After college, he scaled General Assembly, Inc from a $30 Million single location co-working & education business to a $1 Billion international enterprise as their first Analytics Manager by building data pipelines and a general business analytics system. Then he started his own research and development ventures: Sociable Health, Inc developed an Informatic Medicine System for NIH, and Mimely, Inc developed a Complex Therapeutics System for NIMH to crowdsource cognitive behavioral therapy.

In the Fall of 2015 Justin joined Mathematics Academy, Inc as a Data Science Instructor. While teaching, he attended the New School for Social Research for an M.A. in Politics and City College of New York for an M.S. in Mathematics, where he worked on a National Science Foundation project developing computational tools for phylogenetic analysis and developed new quantitative methods for political-economy data analysis. He lived in Honduras for 3 years where he applied these methods to develop technology for large-scale deep population surveying of migrants to research and mitigate the migration crisis. This last year he wrote the lecture series A Tutorial on Data Science for his students and held weekly Research Colloquiums to discuss on-going COVID-19 data science work – both are available in *here*.

## Nazia Naqvi

I am a professional statistician with a doctorate degree in Statistics. Presently, working as a Statistics Professor at University. I have 8 years of teaching experience. I have taught both undergraduate level and postgraduate level students of colleges and universities. I have 12 research papers published in peer-reviewed and referred journals. I have collaborated with departments of biostatistics, microbiology, physics, environmental science, social science, management.

My specialization is in Sampling Theory, Design of Experiment, Econometrics, Multivariate Analysis, Parametric Inference, Factorial Experiment, Sequential Analysis, Numerical Analysis. I have good command over Applied Statistics as well. I use software like Ms Excel and R to perform analysis. My teaching involves lots of real-life examples to make the context of the taught topic relatable and engrossing. I try to make my teaching as simple as possible for students of any caliber to understand and simplify the concepts to the very basics. I also help in writing a thesis and working on survey analysis and other such problems.

Amit loves problem solving-whether it’s Math or real life! Amit loves getting it into the zone to help student remove the Math phobia and improve their scores remarkably.

Amit follows the formula ( I do -> we do -> you do). It means he explains a concept, then he does it together and finally it is the student who does it. Besides, he makes his students ‘think’. He tries ‘not’ to spoon-feed direct answers but instead does a lot of scaffolding to actually arrive at answers.
