Data Scientist

Benjamin Levy

Hey there! I'm Ben. Let me tell you about myself. I'm a data scientist who likes to build things with data that are fun to use, insightful, and make people want to learn more. I recently completed my Master's of Data Science at Harvard University, based in the John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. Come February 2021, I'll be starting as a Data Science Fellow at McKinsey QuantumBlack in Boston, Massachusetts.


What I do

Statistical analysis

Working with complex datasets to extract interesting insights. Bayesian modelling for the win!

Data visualization

Skilled in D3.js and well-versed in best practices for creative, effective, and understandable data visualization.

Machine learning

I use all the common frameworks, although PyTorch and Huggingface are my favourites. Natural language processing (NLP) is a specialty.

Writing and speaking

In my spare time I like to write articles on statistics and probability in everyday life. I also love public speaking, both doing it myself and coaching others.
