What interests you in working with Big Data?

Big Data analytics requires a comprehensive set of skills. You have to think statistically and computationally, but you also have to think about the business problems at hand.

What Big Data technologies are you most interested in?

I am most interested in learning about high performance R, and how that integrates with the Hadoop infrastructure. I am also interested in learning about streaming analytics using Storm.

Have you used Hadoop before?

Yes, at Return Path.

Which tools in the Hadoop ecosystem have you used? (Hive, Pig, Flume, etc ...)

I have used Hive extensively at Return Path. We also use lots of other tools at RP, including Pig, Hbase, and Storm.


I work on the Analytics team at Return Path. Before Return Path, I studied probability at the University of Colorado Boulder. I am passionate about data science, and I have experience with big data technology,
