Passionate about knowledge and scientific truth, (and the scientific methods used to uncover the truth), I've explored the fields of economics and psychology, to look at what/how/why people know what they know, and why/how they reveal that information. LinkedIn Connection Policy: I only "connect" with people that I've physically met or personally corresponded with. LinkedIn profiles are already public, so nothing is gained from meaningless connections (in fact, quite the reverse: the whole value proposition of LinkedIn is destroyed). I consider myself to be exceptionally skilled in the art of statistical inference (I am familiar with the theory and practice of the major methods [regression, singular value decomposition] as well as under-performed methods [visualization, corrections for bias/multiple-comparisons, epistemology]). Full-Time Programming/Development Experience: R/S+, GAMS, Python, Stata, SAS. Power User: Excel (incl macros/VBA), PowerPoint, Minitab, JMP, SPSS, OpenRefine ("GoogleRefine"). Experienced-With-But-Not-Using-At-Present: SQL, Batch Scripting, MS Project, LYX/LaTeX, MATLAB, MS Visio,View the profile
