Data Science, Analytics & Statistics

"A problem well stated is a problem half solved." - John Dewey

Data Science & Database Administration

As Chief Technical Officer and Lead Developer for E-Laborative Technologies Ltd. I have been tasked with a variety of challenging requirements related to data storage, analysis, management, and administration. I have earned certificates in probability, inference & modeling, linear regression, wrangling, and machine learning through the HarvardX program offered through Harvard University, and I have also completed online courses related to Epidemiology offered by Johns Hopkins. I regularly employ SQL and R for big data analytics, visualization, and storage. Most of my professional work involves proprietary business data, financial and legal documentation. I also enjoy public health issues and actively work on several projects related to public health and epidemiology as a private citizen researcher.

The following statistics dashboards demonstrate some of my recent work using R to conduct exploratory data analysis related to various subjects of general public interest. These dashboards utilize various curated public repos, API's, R packages, and other known sources for data acquistion.

Coronavirus Visualization Dashboard
This dashboard shows Coronavirus stats and X day interval growth rates over bar, column and grid charts. It also offers colored chloropleth maps of the US by state, by county, and in individual state-level views. This tool incorporates data from the U.S. Census Bureau and COVID-19 stats compiled by the CoronaDataScraper project.
