Working Area

Data and Decision Science

From problems to insights, via data.

Statistical / Mathematical Modeling

I help you understand what causes your event of interest, using statistics. And then help you predict. This often involves translating business problem into mathematical equations and optimizing them. That results in maximizing desirable events and minimizing undesirable ones.

Visualizations

It is always easier to read picture than reading data. Creating great visualization is both science and art. And most importantly, they should tell a story that you understand. I provide world class visualization service in form of HTML pages, static websites, pdfs, presentations, dashboards and web-apps (Shiny).

Data Strategy

More than 70 % of the data science initiatives fail, often resulting in loss of huge amount of money. I help in building strategy that takes small steps, one at a time. Even if one step fails, loss is minimum and you find a better step. Read this for an example.

Resume Snapshot

My Expertises

Unlike many data science professionals, I did not start my career as a data scientist. Rather, my interest in solving business problems brought me to the world of data science. My strength is this perspective of problem solving, rather than mere data modeling. Download full resume here.
