Flatiron Health's mission is to improve lives by learning from the experience of every cancer patient. How do they do it? They analyze A LOT of data, all thanks to an expert team of Data Scientists and Data Engineers like Sam Bail. Sam is joining us for this hour-long chat to shed a little light on how she personally uses data to accelerate cancer research and provides physician/patient-centered technology solutions at the point of care, as well as answer your questions about the field! MEET THE SPEAKER: Sam is a Data Insights Engineer at Flatiron Health, NYC, working on the integration and transformation of electronic medical record data from oncology clinics in the US, drawing from a large toolkit ranging from various SQL flavors and ETL tools to Python, Pandas, statistical methods and data visualization as well as clinical terminologies and standard software engineering tools to quickly iterate on end-to-end data solutions that provide value to researchers, providers and patients. She completed a PhD at the School of Computer Science, The University of Manchester, UK. My thesis focused on exploring and exploiting the "justificatory structure" of OWL ontologies by using relationships between explanations in order to improve the ontology debugging process.

You asked, we're answering: I'm running on a very low to $0 budget - what should be my first step to marketing my business? Second step?What's been the most successful guerilla tactic you've used to date? What tools have you found to be most helpful? & More!
