I am Enayetur Raheem, a Data Scientist and Statistician with more than 18 years of experience in academia and industry combined.
Currently, I work as a senior data scientist in a health service company in the USA.
As a healthcare data scientist, I provide strategic guidance for the development, validation, and use of algorithm for data based decision making.
I work at the intersection of computer science and statistics. I found that data science and machine learning are separate in a sense that they need to be distinguished. In my opinion the science part of data science is statistics.
Needless to say, most of my works fall under the scientific aspect of data science.
Being primarily a statistician, I have a long history of using R for statistical computing and graphics. R is also my go-to language for research.
In the industry, I primarily use Python. However, I choose tools depending on the scope of the project and not merely because how I feel about a particular tool.
