MPH

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
