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.

MD student w/ skills: Python, Excel, Data Science/...

United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 7

Over the past 5 years, I have developed a unique skillset that is mainly focused on manipulating, visualizing, and understanding data. As a medical student, I've utilized big datasets distributed by the CDC and other governmental organizations to find and anlayze trends in healthcare for research. My core competency lies in utilizing everything from smaller datasets in Excel to writing complete programming solutions to handle very large and complex datasets. I work primarily in python using the main data science libraries (pandas, numpy, scipy) as well as scrape my own data directly into a database using other python libraries (beautifulsoup, mechanize, scrapy). No matter the project, if my studies allow me to have available time, I can complete your data analysis, database manipulation, and other data related projects for you or your business efficiently and with close attention to detail. I also have experience in the following areas: SQL, MongoDB, Microsoft Access, and javascript libraries such as charts.js or D3.js. I am also very familiar and comfortable with medical terminology and am capable of distilling the information in to more accessible terms. I know how difficult it is to understand sometimes but I am able to generate content or review/edit content utilizing my medical school education.
