Zach Farahany's profile

About me: Hi, I'm Zach. I'm a Data Science and Computational Mathematics major at Marquette University. My research project is Predicting Risk of Opioid Use Disorder with a focus on the impact from Covid-19.

Work Log

Week 1


  • Attended REU Orientation and learned beginner python


  • Learned data visualization and basic machine learning


  • Good research practices talk from Dr. Brylow
  • Meeting with Dr. Praveen for project expectations


  • Made personal webpage and completed research plan

Week 2

Literature Summaries

Predicting Opioid Overdose Readmission and Opioid Use Disorder with Machine Learning


  • Use multiple machine learning models and multiple data types to predict the likelihood of hospital readmission following an opioid overdose and diagnosis of opioid use disorder after being prescribed an opioid

Useful Info

  • AUC value is a rate of correct prediction
  • Hospital info is meant to be anonymized, patient identifiers must be removed
  • T40 codes are used as identifiers of various conditions including Covid and OUD
