Hi my name is Elizabeth Ter Sahakyan and I’m a data scientist with a passion for learning new things. I’m interested in exploring the application of machine learning in biotech, fashion, investing, music, movies, or social media.

Prior to data science, I received my B.S. in Biochemistry from UCLA where I did research on Palladium catalysts. After finishing my degree, I joined a media company and learned about the data-driven approach to creating viral video content – working on dozens of videos that received over 1B+ views total across Facebook, Instagram, and Youtube (here’s one of them!). All of these experiences relied on data to create decision making frameworks, and I see data science as a way to do this at scale.
