Maclean Gaulin Professional Resume




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.


Rice University, Jesse H. Jones Graduate School of Business, Houston, TX USA

Ph.D in Accounting (2011-2017)

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

B.S. Electrical Engineering (Magna 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 interchangably and regulary on Ubuntu, Windows, and OSX.
