Data Scientist and R Expert
Last active: 1 day ago
I'm a data scientist and expert R programmer with 7 years of experience. I specialize in solving mission critical business problems using advanced data analysis, machine learning and web technologies. I'm known for quick turn-around and excellence amongst my clients. I live in Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA (time zone: EST).
I'm passionate about finding insights from data and making beautiful data products. In particular, I'm very competent at
1. data scraping
2. data wrangling
3. descriptive & exploratory analysis
4. data visualization
5. inferential & predictive analysis
6. pattern recognition and clustering
7. supervised & unsupervised machine learning algorithms
8. building analytic web apps
9. the R programming language
Some of my recent for-fun projects include a couple of analytic web apps and a book on how to do data analysis using R. They are listed under the portfolio section below. Make sure you check them out.
I also love to teach people how to use R to do data analysis, and I do that through MasterR.org, an online community where you can receive high quality training materials for FREE.
I used to work for FICO, where I built scorecards for the Picture People to predict customer response rates to their marketing campaigns. My scorecards doubled their ROI. I also built customer segmentations for Canadian Tire Bank. It gave the executive team a holistic view of their customers for the first time.
I have a master's degree in Biostatistics from the University of Michigan and a bachelor's degree in mathematics from the New College of Florida. I'm an avid MOOC taker, constantly learning new things in the field. I took all the courses in data science, statistics, data mining and machine learning from Coursera, Udacity, Edx, and Khan Academy.
I have strong work ethics and respond to all my messages in less than 12 hours. Contact me if you need help with analyzing data.
Have a great day!
