The Research Methods and Data Science Lab (also known as the RMDS Lab) is a community of analysts and researchers based out of Pasadena, CA. They aim to empower the scientific community and advance contributions through certification training, data impact consultation and other AI-powered services.
During Spring 2021, the RMDS lab held a data science competition with the premise being to use machine learning along with other data analytics techniques to analyze how news sentiment, along with other factors such as the COVID-19 pandemic and a region’s mobility index, affected different stock prices of the fossil fuel industry.
The 2021-2022 Co-Directors of the DA team, Ryan Peji and Marisa Nakanishi, took lead of this project and, while they didn’t place as high as hoped, they found it as a valuable learning experience.
