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.

You can learn more about me on my LinkedIn page. Feel free to contact me about anything and everything at eykanal at erikdev dot com.

comment Giving presentation on git
Actually, I was thinking about it as a two-part talk, as I suggested above; (1) I talk about what it is, (2) they work along with me doing something. Do you think that wouldn't work?
