How data science can help answer your economic questions
The event of advanced computing has made is possible to access large administrative and accounting databases to answer research and policy questions. However, these datasets require extensive cleaning and harmonising and make considerable demands on computing infrastructure. In this seminar, Alex Codoreanu will talk about his work at Swinburne analysing large databases for economic research. He will discuss the opportunities and challenges he faces.
About the speaker
Alex is a research scientist with experience in designing and implementing distributed architecture solutions. He is currently analysing patent, scientific publication and company databases for economic analysis. He has experience in creating custom databases, cleaning large datasets and developing custom software products. He is interested in natural language processing techniques, language semantic analysis, graph databases and machine learning algorithms.
He is a PhD graduate from the "Centre for Astrophysics and Supercomputing" at Swinburne University. He has designed automatic detection techniques, developed individual priors for each observations and published statistical methods in high-impact research journals. In addition, he has experience with low-level (assembly/FPGA) programming, physical hardware development and has worked and/or is proficient with C++/Python/Julia/IDL/mysql/bash.
