Siddharth K.

MD physician, well published author and independent journal reviewer.

United States - Tests: 1

Hello, I am a US Board (ABPN) certified neurologist, with extensive experience in manuscript writing and independent biostatistical analysis. I have had the good fortune to be educated in top tier Universities including Johns Hopkins. A short synopsis of my CV is as follows: ================================================================= TRAINING: ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- - Masters at the Johns Hopkins School of Public health. (Concentration - Molecular Microbiology and Immunology). - Independent courses in epidemiology and biostatistics at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. - Residency in Neurology in the US - Fellowship in Epilepsy at a very reputed US university on the west coast. - Currently awaiting visa clearance for a clinical attachment at a very reputed University College in the UK. - ================================================================= WORK EXPERIENCE: ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Extensive work experience in top-tier research institutions, including being a faculty member at a well-known tertiary referral center in the US. I can make these details available in private communication. ================================================================= SKILLS --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------------------- 1) RESEARCH WRITING: --------------------------------------------------------- - 19 published manuscripts. More than 200 citations. - 14 published abstracts - Co-authored one book chapter in a well known authoritative textbook on vascular malformations in the CNS. - 1 highlighted platform presentation at an international conference. --------------------------------------------------------- 2) CRITICAL REVIEW: --------------------------------------------------------- - Independent reviewer for 5 journals. 3 of have the highest impact factors in Neurology/Neurosurgery. --------------------------------------------------------- 3) BIOSTATISTISTICAL ANALYSIS: --------------------------------------------------------- I use MS Access for database management and STATA for analysis. - Non-parametric tests for comparison and multiple comparison correction. - Linear and Logistic regression - Receiver Operating Curve (ROC) analysis - Survival analysis and Multivariate Cox regression --------------------------------------------------------- 2) GRANT WRITING: --------------------------------------------------------- Co-authored two successful grants (Not as the PI). --------------------------------------------------- HOW CAN I HELP YOU? --------------------------------------------------- 1) BIOSTATISTICAL ANALYSIS: I can perform the required biostatistics for your paper. I spend as much time on background reading as I do on the actual analysis. My medical training and this background reading enables me to understand the core question, the confounders to adjust for, the way in which these interact with one another and ultimately to interpret the data. The hallmark of good biostatistical analysis is that it should make sense biologically. I would not trust a huge study which concluded that baseline heart rate was related to the left knee size, irrespective of the quality of the biostatistical analysis. 2) MANUSCRIPT WRITING/EDITING AND RESEARCH SUGGESTIONS: If your manuscript has already been written, I can use this experience and inside knowledge to review your manuscript before submission, to: (1) improve the flow of the manuscript (2) Ensure that the correct statistical techniques have been used and correct any statistical errors. (3) Point out concerns with methodology that the reviewers may raise e.g. adjusting for patients lost to followup. (4) Suggest additional analysis or research questions. 3) GRANT WRITING: I can review your grant application before submission to make sure the justification is properly stated, improve the flow, and ensure that the biostatistics are in order.

Medical and general translation / General writer / Medical writer

Venezuela - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 1

I’m a physician from Venezuela and I’ve been working as one since 2 years ago. My native language is Spanish and I learned English on my teens years by reading and chating online then I decided to take it serious and took English classes on the Central University of Venezuela. I do not have professional experience translating English to Spanish but while being on college I had to translate some medical papers and scientific work to help some friends that didn’t understand a bit of English. I also did some transcription of college lessons so I have experience transcribing. I like writing and could write about multiple topics especially medical topics.
