I hope to learn more about the data science community in Middle TN. I would like to discuss ways to connect data scientists in universities and businesses to strengthen to the local community.
I read the trends and have worked with successful data scientists in a variety of fields including GIS, astronomy, precision agriculture and bioinformatics, but have limited personal experience coding for these projects.
I work with teams, faculty members and students that use tools for big data analysis, cloud computing, bioinformatics and machine learning such as hadoop, R, and Python.
I have a background in biomedical research, astrobiology, science education and grant writing. I am in the Office of Research at MTSU helping to develop proposals to support research and education projects which include data science projects.
