I’m Nik Agarwal and this is my blog for my random musings on life and data.

Currently, I’m a principal data scientist at Makusafe, where I focus on predictive analytics on motion & location classification with our wearable device. Prior to MakuSafe, I was a data scientist in varying roles at John Deere focusing on machine & customer behavior modeling, market basket analysis, and anomaly detection on machine usage. Early on in my career, I was a manufacturing engineer focused on optimal assembly line work distribution/allocation along with process optimization.

Outside of work, my interests include:

  • stats & data analysis
  • road biking
  • photography (DSLR & drone)
  • taking adventurous hikes with my family

I have a Master’s degree in Data Science from Northwestern University and a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering from Northern Illinois University.

Thanks for stopping by!
