With a background containing mathematics, science, computer science, computer and information science, electrical engineering, and decision science, I can comprehend technical situations, analyze the data, model the system, forecast results, and assist in making the optimal (or near optimal) decision.

Statistical analysis is where the data is studied to determine what is occurring quantitatively. Intelligent Data Analysis (IDA) goes a little further in utilizing advanced methodologies such as neural networks and other artificial intelligence processes. Qualitative analysis to understand the phenomenon can also be undertaken.

In tackling these projects, I have worked with various people in many positions. I have had to work with programmers, developers, program managers, operating system wizards, and even the customer. In problem solving, it is important to understand both the problem and the goal. Afterwards I usually write a formal report and make a presentation.
