You will build data science models using a variety of methodologies. Past projects have involved time-series, machine learning, statistics, optimization, and simulation. You will analyze and interpret the results and progress of analytical efforts, delivering clear, well-structured communication to internal clients and stakeholders using a variety of formats (e.g. demos, presentations).
