In his previous role as lead data scientist at a healthcare technology company, Michael applied analysis techniques such as classification, clustering, sequence analysis, propensity scoring and statistical simulations to unearth value from hospital bedside monitoring systems data. Michael’s educational background includes extensive work at the graduate level in statistics and machine learning, including degrees in actuarial science, philosophy and education. Michael most recently completed a graduate certificate in advanced analytics from Oklahoma State University and a Ph.D. in candidate, measurement and statistics from Arizona State University.
