    My current goal is to work independently at home, while leveraging my abilities and strengths from my varied life experiences. I am also willing to learn new things and increase my list of skills. I am highly interested in helping others reach their goals and will work hard for you or your company. I am good at adapting to what you need and following any guidelines that must be followed. My background starts in medicine, health and science but easily grows to music, ballroom dancing, cooking, and stitchery. I am comfortable working on the computer and internet. Microsoft Word or PowerPoint, Amazon/Kindle or eBay, I am routinely using them. I will gladly do research, write what you need written, re-write what you have, or proofread your finished product. I will fit in wherever you need me and provide support where needed. Accurate, consistent, hard-working, and professional. Whether good or bad, I am a perfectionist.

  3. 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.

    Rebecca Fein

    Health Informatics Consultant

    United States - Tests: 2

    I apply a solutions based approach to solving complex puzzles, and achieving successful systems improvement. I have a natural talent for "out of the box" creative strategies that solve complex puzzles. I love looking at systems and finding ways to improve them, and I also love using my conflict management skills, analytical abilities, critical thinking capabilities, and interpersonal skills to cultivate cross-cultural relationships. Today, this combination is more important than ever. The world is becoming smaller and smaller and people need to be able to reach across cultural divides to solve complex issues that affect the world we live in. Nowhere is this more true than in the healthcare arena. I am currently using my extensive experience as "problem solver extraordinaire" with the Laboratory Informatics Institute where I evaluate and develop training programs for apps in the SciCloud. I work hard to define requirements, plan implementations, and provide superior on going support/training so that you don't have to. I specialize in EHR, LIMS, LIS, HIS, and HL7 apps to name a few. I also specialize in things like regulatory compliance and auditing. I am a one stop solution shop for all your HIT problems. I have spent many years learning, practicing, and finally honing this unique skills set and now I am ready to solve your puzzle. You have a puzzle and I have a solution!
