  • Automatize data processing steps of trade in services data.
  • Share processed data with UNCTAD and WTO
  • Development:

  • Improve the error management system
  • Develop a standalone version
  • Develop imputation methods to replace missing values and outliers for the computation of trade indices
  • Workshop

  • Develop training materials
  • Contribute to the development of distance learning courses (ECOWAS and CARIFORUM)
  • Perform data quality checks
  • Contribute to the regional training delivery on data quality
  • For IRMES:

    Grenoble - 2018
    Training manager : Timothée Aubourg - Nicolas Vuillerme

    A study was conducted with Orange Labs on 26 peoples and they collected data from their phone conversation with a psychologist.

  • With my colleague Sylla Camara we have hundreds of backup conversation between patient and psychologist and we had two objectives
  • To investigate the potential structure existing behind phone conversational parameters in a population of fragile older adults.
  • Explore the corresponding opportunities/challenge in the health research area.
  • We create a Shiny application to show structure and cluster in a phone call in our dataset and to make them exploitable for another dataset.
  • Tasks to be completed: Machine learning, analysis technique, Shiny app designer, team work, investigate, clustering

    BD is a global medical technology company that is advancing the world of health by improving medical discovery, diagnostics and the delivery of care. BD leads in patient and healthcare worker safety and the technologies that enable medical research and clinical laboratories.

  • With my colleague Sylla Camara, we create an application Shiny for the research and development department of BD Pharmaceutical System which predict the interfacial tension (IFT) between solution and silicon in a syringe. For that, we use different analysis technique (Lasso, Random Forest, Constrained regression, ...) to find which variables are the more significant.
