The GSU chapter of the ACM presents

Introductory Data Science Workshop in R

Andira Putri
Data Scientist
Xylem Inc.

Data science is a growing interdisciplinary field; it combines mathematics, computer programming, and domain knowledge to create life and meaning out of many types of data: big, small, structured, unstructured. Many methods used in data science are based on the notion of linear regression, so getting the basics down is super important! In this workshop, we discuss and implement simple/multiple linear regression, logistic regression, and cross-validation techniques. We use the R statistical language and the RStudio environment to implement our models. Participants should bring a laptop with the R Base Package and RStudio already installed.

NOTE: Seating is limited; please register at

About the Speaker: Andira Putri is a Data Scientist at Xylem Inc., a water engineering and technology company. She graduated from Georgia State University with a B.S. in Mathematics in Spring 2018. During her undergraduate career, Andira built her experience and passion for math through completing research projects in bioinformatics and tutoring in the Math Assistance Complex. Now, Andira does math every day! Her main role is to conduct statistical analysis on time series data, and the most important tool for her modeling is RStudio. She also works on data communication and visualization, data science workflows, and training others in machine learning (haha!). She works out of Research Triangle Park in North Carolina, and in the fall, she is beginning a master’s in statistics at North Carolina State University.
