I am a Ph.D. student at Unit for Biomedical Data Analytics (BDA) of INSIGHT at the National University of Ireland Galway. My research work is focused on sports science and sports medicine area in a partnership project with ORRECO; an Irish start-up company that provides evidence-based advice to individual athletes through biomarker and GPS data. My goal is to develop a statistical model that will help ORRECO to provide individualized advice about training need of athletes based on their own biomarker profile and GPS records.
Before joining at INSIGHT as a Ph.D. student I was leading a team of statisticians at an international public health research organization (icddr,b). My primary role there was to develop internal statistical capabilities for researchers who comes from various discipline. I was involved in designing and delivering statistical training to the researchers.
I have a Bachelors and Masters in Statistics. During my masters, the thesis I was involved in empirically reviewing various machine learning algorithm and compare their performance. I have written two books in R programming “Data Manipulation with R” and “R Graphs Cookbook” (Second Edition).
My current research interests are, 1) Predictive modeling to predict probable injury of an athlete, 2) Scoring extremeness of multivariate data to get an early signal of an anomaly.
