Shafquat Arefeen

Data Analyst & Engineer


I ❤️ data! I consider myself a translator between big data and the people who need to understand it to make business decisions. While you're here, why don't you check out my resume or my portfolio?

Through a series of scraping and data cleaning techniques, I was able to pull 2 years of data and visualize it to help the public make informed data-based decisions.
