Leveraging on education and professional background in data analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence, the Data Analytics Lead will conceptualize new methods and approaches that help interpret continuous streams of biosensor data with the goal of providing valuable diagnostic information.
The Data Analytics Lead will have a strong interface biosensor and engineering team members, as well as Clinical, Quality and Regulatory as needed to support preclinical and clinical data analysis. This lead role will have responsibilities to ensure the type and quality of data provided and lead work directly with internal and external experts in machine learning and algorithm development.
The Data Analytics Lead will be expected to conduct analyses with our database and lead the strategy and development of analysis plans for upcoming studies and trials with the goal of evaluating multiple parameters to develop unique and/or composite signature metrics/algorithms with predictive diagnostic outcomes.
The Data Analytics Lead will work collaboratively with other team members to achieve these goals.
