Business Intelligence Statistician
Seedbox Technologies, Inc - Montreal, Quebec
I was instrumental in aiding this medium-sized IT firm in its transition from a company run on intuition to one run on data-driven decision making.
Most of my energy went into performing R & D for the PCI group.
In the general spirit of Seedbox, I helped out w/ other facets of our company when I could. For example, I was part of a team implementing Google's ftrl-proximal algorithm into their online auctioning.
I used mainly Perl and/ or Python, MySQL, Unix/Linux utilities and R. And a very attentive, listening attitude.

Montreal Heart Institute - Montreal, Quebec
In SNP-phenotype association studies, SAS PROC CASECONTROL offers an optimal test in the case of the mode of inheritance being additive and suboptimal tests for recessive and dominant traits.
I wrote a suite of SAS MACROs which implements the MAX test followed by the max T algorithm which yield P-values corrected for the facts that a multitude of SNPs often
need to be tested, three modes of inheritance need to be investigated and SNPs are often
