  •  Build predictive models utilizing both traditional statistical methods (Generalized Linear Models, Mixed Effects Models, Ridge, Lasso, etc.) and modern machine learning techniques (Gradient Boosted Trees, Random Forests, Kernel Methods, Deep Learning, etc.).
  • Extract, clean, and manipulate large datasets (both structured and unstructured) for model building.
  • Communicate insights from quantitative analyses to technical and non-technical audiences.
  • Research and implement novel machine learning algorithms.
  • Work with business sponsors and IT teams to implement analytic solutions.
