My name is Phil Dunphy, and I am excited to start as a project specialist here at the IJIS Institute! I graduated from Montclair State University in 2021 with a BS in Business Administration with a concentration in analytics. In 2021 I started interning as a data ingestion engineer at the company ZMBDNA and was an instructor and TA for a SaaS product called StreamSets until 2023. I have experience with coding languages such as Python, SQL, and some hybrid versions of Spark like PySpark and SparkSQL. I also have experience using the data visualization tool Tableau in conjunction with the mentioned coding languages. Outside of the data and business world, I am a huge fan of music in every sort of way! I play bass in a band, and I also produce, record, mix, and master projects for clients in my free time. I am known to be a problem solver and love to find solutions as efficiently and effectively as possible. I look forward to this journey at IJIS and can’t wait to see what I learn!
