I specialise in making data more useful and more visible to our customers and analysts through database structure and regression forecasting models:

–           Structuring: I am restructuring the way in which data is collected, stored and accessed by analysts. I am creating a protocol tying together Excel, MySQL and R. This is reducing computation time and data errors.

–           Forecasting: I am working on forecasting models using the created database (MySQL) with analytic software (R). The results are for both analysts internally and external clients

–           Development: review both structure and forecasting to further streamline and improve the forecasting of analysts. I am concurrently leading a project to develop an analyst platform (Shiny). This plugs into our database server Red Hat Linux distribution.
