PhD. Data scientist and statistician

Spain - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 16 - Portfolio: 7

Have some question that requires a statistical or machine learning answer? No problem. As a data scientist with 15 years of experience, I have the technical knowledge and the communication skills needed to solve your problem and, most important, give an answer that you can apply to your field of interest. What I offer to you is a full data analysis/machine learning stack, including: - Getting and organizing your data. - Selecting the most relevant statistical or machine learning technique for your case. - Applying the technique to your data. - Writing a report that explains every step taken and makes a interpretation of the results. All written with enough technical detail, but that doesn't require a depth statistical knowledge to follow. - Assistance in applying the results to your specific field. I can do all this using any or several of the following: R, MATLAB, Python, MySQL. Everybody can apply an out of the shell statistical algorithm to some benchmark data. But I'm an expert in the tricks needed to apply those algorithms to real data.
