I am available for all phases of a data driven project.
Please contact me if you would like to discuss my involvement in any of these phases.

Data Acquisition
In addition to your own business data, there is extensive data publicly available. I can use my experience and knowledge to help you obtain this data. This can be done through available APIs and data scraping.

Data Preparation
One of the most overlooked portions of a data project is the preparation and cleansing of the data.  Real world tends to be messy; only in the most trivial of projects is some sort of preparation not needed.  In most, significant work is needed to get data into its desired format. I have extensive experience in this phase and can help you with this crucial step.

I have extensive experience working  in commercial settings with large databases, including Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQL Server and DB2. I can assist you in the following ways

  • Database Modeling
  • ETL
  • Programming
  • Performance Tuning

Exploratory Data Analysis (EDA)
Exploratory data analysis  is a preliminary step to help better understand your data.
My experience in EDA can help you get a better handle on your data.

Data Modeling & Data Mining

I can create and apply statistical models and techniques to your data to further deepen your understanding of your data. These include

  • Classification including classification trees, logistic regression and ensemble methods
  • Design of experiments
  • Sampling

Visualizing data can be invaluable in both understanding your data and presenting your data.

GIS and Geospatial Analysis

Data tied to a location has become more prevalent in recent years. I can help you analyze and map your location- aware data to further your understanding.  To quote Tobler’s first law of geography : “Everything is related to everything else, but near things are more related than distant things.”

In addition to developing your data solutions, I can help to automate and productionize your data processes

Any data solutions provided will always be accompanied by in depth documentation to help you support your solutions.
