What is your level of experience with Statistics, Predictive Analytics, Machine Learning and/or Data Mining?

I have a PhD in statistics and have research experience in mining high volume of data genereated from large scale genome-wide association studies. One of my interest is to explore use of data from these studies to build models for prediction of risks of diseases for individuals in the general population. I have extensively published in this topic in both statistics and genetcs literature.

What tools and technologies do you use?

i like using simple transparent methods for building models. i believe the quality and size of the traninhg dataset are often more important than the specific algorithm. in my research, i do use various type of regression based models for predictive analysis.

What do you hope to get out of this group?

networking, increasing awareness about new developments


I am a Mathematical Statistician by traning and have taken the plunge into the data science through research in cancer epidemiology, genetics and genomics at the National Cancer Institute
