PhD Candidate, Biostatistics; Vanderbilt University
I am currently biostatistician and data scientist at Vanderbilt University. My research focuses on the fusion of machine learning and data visualization to explore and explain electronic health records data. I have worked as a data journalist in the graphics department at the New York Times, a data scientist at Johns Hopkins University Data Science Lab, and as a 'Data Artist in Residence' at data visualization startup Conduce. I am active on Twitter (nicholasstrayer) and blog about data science and visualization with fellow DataCamp instructor Lucy D'Agostino McGowan at livefreeordichotomize.com.
