I am a data analyst with the ability to write and work in a variety of areas. My main strength is that I'm able to communicate about mathematics.

I have a PhD in statistics and a teaching qualification in high school mathematics and science.
As a statistics advisor I helped life science graduate students with their data analysis.
I have reviewed research papers in preparation by academics, advising and checking the statistics. These papers were in diverse areas including entomology, breast cancer and building construction. I have been a reviewer for a top statistics journal and I have my own peer reviewed publications. I have written a number of reports with topics ranging from school tuckshops to the behaviour of cattle in feedlots.
I taught statistics to university students with business, biological science and mathematics backgrounds.
As a freelancer I handle the data for a large geography competition held annually in Australia; 70,000 students answer fifty multiple choice questions. My tasks have included finding the winner, the best performing school and so on. I have used a variety of statistical packages to do this work.

I have dabbled in medical studies and actuarial studies. I have a Graduate Certificate in Molecular Biology. I just took and passed the Elance "data modeling" test; it's about DBMS and SQL.
