Hi! My name is Nikhil Sharma and I am an aspiring data scientist. I am in my fourth year at UCLA, where I study Statistics.
On campus, I am President of Bruin Sports Analytics. Last year, I was Blog Chair, where I oversaw all operations related to
the Data Journalism team, including editing all articles, advising writers on their analyses and writing pieces of my own. As
President, I manage all club operations by supervising the data journalism, research and consulting teams.
This past summer, I was the Advanced Analytics & Data Science Intern at L'Oréal USA, in New York, NY. While interning, I undertook various projects to help optimize marketing strategies, evaluate marketing costs and predict daily online revenues
for brands such as L'Oréal Paris, Maybelline New York, Matrix and Kiehl's. I acheived these goals through tree-based and regression modeling.
I am also currently working remotely with Dr. Shane Jensen, Associate Professor of Statistics at The Wharton School on a
research project approaching the Ewing Theory in the NBA through statistical modeling. The Ewing Theory is the idea that
when a star athlete leaves a team, the team gets better.
Last summer, I was a Decision Sciences/Business Insights Intern at Communications Media, Inc. in Philadelphia, PA.
As an intern, I was mainly tasked with analyzing and predicting behavior of healthcare professionals for advertising
purposes through NLP and regression models.
In my free time, I enjoy watching NBA games and listening to hip-hop. I occasionally dabble in writing as well; I was once a
Contributor for the Arts & Entertainment section of UCLA's main newspaper, The Daily Bruin.
