Hi, I'm Alec Zimmer. I'm in the PhD program in statistics at the University of Washington and expect to graduate with a Master's in March 2016. I'm currently working on projectiong CO2 emissions worldwide with Adrian Raftery, Dargan Frierson, and Dick Startz (paper in progress). I've completed the PhD coursework for statistics as well as the machine learning and big data track.
Before grad school I worked at Acumen, LLC analyzing healthcare data, as an intern at Amazon working on very large data to improve advertising models, and graduated from the University of Chicago in Applied Math and Statistics.
I'm currently on the job market. You can reach me at [a zimmer 8 at uw dot edu]. Here's my LinkedIn profile.
