I am an empirical archival researcher in Accounting with a background in electrical engineering.

I specialize in data manipulation and analysis primarily in SAS and Python. I am familiar with the core features of SAS and frequently use the scientific toolchain in Jupyter, namely numpy, scipy, pandas, statsmodels, and scikit-learn.

Ph.D Candidate, Accounting (Expected 2017)

Rose Hulman Institute of Technology, Terre Haute, IN. (2003–2007)

B.S. Electrical Engineering (Summa cum-laude), Minor Economics


Data Analysis

I have broad data-analysis experience with Python, MATLAB, SAS, STATA and SQL. Prior to my doctoral studies, I did extensive vision-based analysis and control in LabVIEW.

Software Development

My work experience includes software development projects that range from small scripts to GUI programs to distributed software architecture. Currently, I focus on data analysis, both algorithm development and data cleaning. I develop mostly on *NIX machines, but have used Windows in the past.
