Alex was by far one of the best professors I have ever taken. He was fantastic in making the course engaging by using real world datasets and significance, such as analyzing a Spotify dataset or words in dating apps. He was extraordinarily accommodating, responsive and helpful. I wanted to succeed in the class and he made sure I did by helping me as much as he could. I really wish I could take this class again!

Taking Statistical Learning 218 was a really solid experience for me. The course did a great job mixing up the deep theory stuff with hands-on practical work, which made the abstract concepts a lot easier to get a grip on. We used R a lot, which was challenging at first, but really boosted my coding skills by the end. The homework was tough but super rewarding, and I actually enjoyed the grind. Plus, the professors and classmates were all into collaborating and helping out, which made a big difference. Honestly, if you're into stats and want to see how it works in the real world, this course is a great pick.

I loved this course. Alex is great. The grading is very fair. All tests are like projects, take home and you have plenty of time to complete them. The lectures can move fast at times, but Alex always knows when to slow down.
