Data Science: Head of Operations (Secretary)

Hi! I’m Lionel, currently a 1st year studying EIE. I am running for a committee position in ICDSS because I have benefitted heavily from the workshops and events that ICDSS has held so far. The current committee has done an extremely awesome job in organising the events and I am inspired to be part of the team to uphold the quality of events available to members in learning about data science.
I am running for Head of Operations as I would like to oversee the backbone that keeps these activities running. Organising events and logistical planning is no stranger to me. While I was serving as an army officer, I had several experiences organising events like planning bilateral training with other armed forces. Having experienced organising various events, I believe I can ensure the smooth running of ICDSS activities.
If I am elected, I will ensure that workshops continue to run and provide good quality data science content with the support of room bookings, manpower, and food planned beforehand. I will also push for more interview preparation sessions to assist members in applying for a Data Science internship or graduate job. In addition, the annual AI Hack will be another key focus. Having volunteered for this year’s hackathon, I understand the inner workings of the hackathon and I believe next year’s edition can be even bigger and better. Lastly, I will also push for greater opportunities for project collaboration on data science competitions between members through the ICDSS Advanced Team.
