I'm a data scientist at Highmark, Inc, working as the manager of predictive analystics and data management within Operations. I earned my PhD doing computational neuroscience, working with decision making processes and investigating functional connectivity between different parts of the human brain. I've also worked as a financial quant, freelance web developer, and IT consultant. One of my favorite pastimes is poi spinning.

comment Do SAS coding “best practices” exist?
@sixtyfootersdude - if you google SAS, you'll find SAS, the company. They make the eponymous SAS software, which is intended for a wide variety of data retrieval, analysis, and presentation tasks, among (many, many) other things. It is ridiculously popular in Enterprise.
