    > Joe.about_me


I have been working on visualizing data in d3.js. The following link contains a visualization showing how rankings in the FBS have changed over the weeks.


Below are some selected projects that I have recently worked on in an academic setting or in my free time. I am currently working on a few of projects that are not listed below, which include: using collaborative filtering (using big data frameworks and techniques) on Amazon data to analyze co-purchasing trends, using d3.js to make a "graph theorist's sketchpad", and analyzing the effect of competitive balance on match viewership in Esports.
