Skills and Experience Required


Abstract Reasoning - Envisions a solution before implementation by analyzing data, extracting patterns and relationships to establish a problem or solution's feasibility; develops new algorithms and analytical models using process diagrams, flow charts, and textual documentation to explain or conceptualize a complex problem.

Data Mining - Identifies relationships and patterns in data by using a suite of data exploration and data visualization techniques using tools such as PowerBI, R Shiny, SAS JMP, and extracts insights into multivariate data by applying principles of multivariate data mining, small sample statistical inferential tests, dimension reduction techniques to understand the underlying structure of the data and enable sound conclusions upon model building.

Predictive Modeling - Develops statistical and machine learning models using appropriate variable transformations, feature selection strategies, imputation strategies, class rebalancing, resampling strategies and performance metrics to generate descriptive, explanatory or predictive models.

Statistical Foundations - Builds statistical explanatory models for regression, classification, outlier detection, anomaly detection, time series forecasting using knowledge of foundational statistics such as Null Hypotheses Significance Tests, regression models, generalized linear modeling, time series analysis, rank statistics, probability distribution fitting survival analysis, etc. to validate hypotheses or generate predictions for any given statistical or business question.

System Simulation - Creates models of interconnected systems under dynamic operating conditions using mathematical models for physical and mechanical systems (such as Markov chains and Monte Carlo methods) and various simulation packages to reproduce the behavioral characteristics of the system(s) being simulated and to gain insight into how the system(s) reacts under different operating conditions.

Requirements Analysis - Evaluates relationships and interdependencies between requirements based upon their complexity and value to the business in order to determine feasibility and prioritization.
