What applications do you currently use R for?

Clustering, general linear models, classification

What topics would you like to see covered at our Meetups?

Business or application cases of modeling. IE: Here is my problem. I decided to use model X because model Y was over fitted, and model X performed better in cross validation etc. Here is how I did it in R.

Would you be willing to host a talk on your area of expertise?

Yes. Mostly, community finding approaches.


Fresh stats undergrad. Just started as a data scientist at LinkedIn. Super interested in all things data. Plans to eventually return for a PhD in machine learning. Most excited by community detection, dynamic networks, and dimension reduction.
