Omar Zaffar was a family business owner studying Chemistry before he transitioned to Data Science via Lambda school’s training program. Recently, he worked on a complex project using state-of-the-art machine learning libraries and data from the last 50 years of F1 racing to predict whether a driver in F1 would finish in the top 3, top 10 or out of the points (bottom 10). He’s also worked with Family Promise, where he built an API for the intake manager to predict whether a homeless family is likely to come back to the shelter and which areas need the most attention to lead them to a permanent residence.
In his free time, you’ll find him working on his race car or trying something new he hasn’t done before.
