Social Media Engagement for 2020 Presidential Candidates

About Jordan McNea

Jordan’s favorite part of data science is the rewarding feeling of taking messy, unruly data and turning it into beautiful tables where insights can be easily found. This is why he chose to do an engineering project for his capstone and focus on building those skills. After he finishes his degree in the Fall, he hopes to find a job that sets him on the path of being a Data Scientist. Working with data in a Python or R all day is the dream.
