Welcome - Let’s Get Statistical!

Hi there! I’m Shamindra and a graduate student in Statistics at the wonderful Carnegie Mellon University (Go Tartans!). I’ve decided to start blogging to document my learning and development in statistics as a new graduate student.

I’d like it to be a fun place to document interesting things I like to read about in the statistics and machine learning space (rstats, python, theory) as well as anything else I am into e.g. books, cricket (the Australian version of baseball) etc.

Please browse around, leave a (friendly) comment, and most importantly enjoy as we explore together!


The credit to starting this blog goes to the following people from the interweb who stopped me from procrastinating (all of whom I have not yet met in person 😄). I hope to not disappoint and create some useful content here 🖖.
