I'm Kelly Li.

A Data Scientist, who also crafts compelling narratives through data, currently based in Toronto, ON.



With a strong academic foundation in Biotechnology and Chemistry, including an Honours Bachelor of Science from the University of Toronto, I have transitioned from the world of laboratory work to the dynamic field of data science. My journey continued with specialized training in data science through the Data Science bootcamp at BrainStation, where I honed my skills in a wide range of data-related disciplines.

Ingredients I Bring to the Table:

A Peek Behind the Kitchen:

Beyond my data-drenched pursuits, I'm on a mission to demystify open-source, engineer tech that empowers, and weave a close-knit community. With a hunger for learning, I'm always enthusiastic about broadening my skill set and advancing in my journey as a data professional.

Creative Culinary Creations:

When I'm not lost in coding recipes, you'll often find me in the kitchen, experimenting with culinary creations. I have a passion for cooking, and my culinary adventures extend beyond coding. I love to whip up both algorithms and crème brûlée, exploring the intersection of data science and gastronomy.

The COVID-19 pandemic has prompted a global effort to develop and distribute vaccines to protect people against the virus. This visualization provides a comprehensive overview of the vaccination progress across the world by tracking the percentage of the population vaccinated in each country, along with other relevant data such as the number of doses administered, vaccine types, and the timeline of the vaccination campaign. This powerful visualization allows viewers to understand the global impact of the COVID-19 vaccine rollout and helps to identify the countries that are leading the way in vaccinating their populations. By presenting this data in an accessible and easy-to-understand format, this visualization can help to inform and inspire the public to take action and support the ongoing efforts to end the pandemic.

InstaCart Online Grocery Market Basket Analysis

The modern world of e-commerce has revolutionized the way consumers shop for everyday essentials. With the increasing reliance on online platforms for grocery shopping, understanding customer preferences, purchasing patterns, and product associations has become essential for both retailers and data scientists.

By undertaking this project, I aim to extract valuable insights from the dataset that can benefit both Instacart as a service provider and consumers looking for a more convenient shopping experience. Through data-driven analysis, we can uncover hidden patterns, identify trends, and develop data-driven strategies for optimizing the shopping journey.
