I’m a Bioinformatician and Data Scientist who is passionate about Statistics and Genomics research. I use Machine Learning, Data Science and Visual Analytics to reveal critical insights. Curently I’m a
R developer at McGill in the Xia laboratory where we develop easy-to-use bioformatics tools for various ‘omics data analysis, interpretation and integration.
On the side, I offer consulting services and am currently carring out some Marketing Consulting for InceptionPhotoBooth; helping their company with Sale Optimisation Analysis, Expenditure Optimisation Analysis, Product Pricing Analysis, Automated Reporting and Digital Marketing ROI Calculations.
Previously I was a biostatistican for the Meaney laboratory at the Douglas Mental Health University Institute, McGill and the primary data scientist in the Kubicek lab at the Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences working on oncology and diabetes and consulted for the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (Canada). I received a Masters in Biological Sciences from the University of Calgary, as a coral biologist using genomics to study reproductive patterns in coral reefs.
I love thinking creatively and using the statistical programming language R to find actionable insights. In addition to analyzing and visualizing data in R, I find it particularly satisfying to automate manual tasks such as reporting. My interests include statistics, data analysis, and programming in R. My work primarly involves:
Supplemental to my goals as a researcher, I am a consummate educator. I have worked as a tutor, served as a mentor for middle school students on money management, and acted (badly) for an educational film. I try to support open-source projects and open data where possible; - I am the author of the vapoRwave package. This entire website was constructed in Rmarkdown using blogdown and Hugo.
