Sr. Data Scientist, GEMINI
My role with the GEMINI team:
In my current role as a Data Scientist with GEMINI, I am hoping to help improve the data pipelines from when GEMINI receives raw data to getting the data into our databases.
My past experience and accomplishments:
Prior to joining GEMINI, I worked as a Statistician at the University of Guelph. I helped develop a forecast model to help future budgeting and enrolment planning at the University. I also worked with student services to develop models to help better understand student success.
Before I worked at the University of Guelph, I worked with Abt Associated in Boston. There, I helped construct research-ready datasets for the Department of Justice, and conducted analysis on Medicaid data to better understand access to mental health services.
My educational background:
I completed a Master's of Public Health at Boston University in Biostatistics. For my thesis, I was able to work with the National Emergency Data Set and used both supervised and unsupervised machine learning techniques to better understand factors that affect emergency department length of stays.
I feel most inspired when:
I'm working with great and friendly colleagues.
A few of my favourite things are:
Playing soccer (before the pandemic)
Running after my kids
