Oct 2018 - Mar 2020 (1.5 years)
Senior Statistician (Research and Data Science)
Led causal inference (potential outcomes, directed acyclic graphs) to model CMS metrics/outcomes using healthcare claims (e.g., Medicare, case-mix) joined with socio-behavioral determinants of health commercial data (e.g., LexisNexis, LiveRamp); e.g., machine learning prediction (e.g., regularized GLM, random forests) for admission/readmission risk, total cost of care, hospital length-of-stay. Performed life sciences real-world evidence cost analytics: wrote statistical analysis plan, conducted multiple imputation. Assessed data quality (missingness, measurement error, selection bias). Taught/applied statistical methods (e.g., survey sampling, standardization, imputation). Worked in R, SQL, and Spark (Sparklyr, PySpark); RStudio, DBeaver, and AWS (Athena, EMR, S3, EC2). PM: Confluence, Jira, scrum master.
