    Experienced writing, editing, and software development professional

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 2

    I'm interested in clear-cut projects that provide immediate benefit to clients. I'm ready to step in, do some coding, editing, writing, patching -- whatever is required -- and then step out. I'm an XML specialist and data wrangler from way back, and have extensive background in scripting -- mainly XSL, Perl, VBA, and various shells, and I speak HTML and CSS/SASS as well. Some of these scripts eventually grew into fairly major utilities in their own right. I've been involved in the publishing field one way or another throughout my career; the early years were spent as a technical writer and trainer, so my skill set is a mix of technical and literary.

    I study Computer Science and Economics in the US. I have been doing statistical data analysis in R and python development for 2+ years now and have experience working with a variety of single/multiple regression and /multivariate time series models, clustering techniques, and survery data. I have also developed a specialty in machine learning techniques, particularly Random Forest, kNN, k-means, C4.5, and CRAN. I specialize in creating meaningful reports and visualizations that allow everyone-even non-statisticians-to understand complex expressions of statistical analysis. Heavy experience using ggplot2 within R. Almost anyone can run a statistical analysis, but it takes skill to craft something that is digestible and easy to understand. I am a dedicated and hard worker, and guarantee a useful product delivered in a timely manner.
