Dark Reactions Project

Data Analysis and Visualization




Helping chemists focus their efforts.

About This Project

Chemistry is about trial and error. Experiment is necessary for discovery. That said, the better we analyze past experiments, the better we can predict what to try next. That's where the Dark Reaction Project comes in.

THE GOAL

Haverford has large collections of old experiments performed by students over the years. I aimed to use those data to help chemists decide what to pursue next.



THE RESULT

The analysis and visualizations from this project are in use on the Dark Reaction Project website, and were featured at a research symposium and discussed by a chemistry professor at a conference of the American Chemical Society.

THE IDEA

Many schools and universities collect data on past experiments and whether they succeeded or failed. To some degree, future success and failure will resemble those existing data.



THE SKILLS

This required background in statistics, linear algebra, and discrete mathematics. It was completed in conjunction with a Data Science class. I cleaned the set with python scripts, and created the visualizations with D3 and javascript.
