Data Science as a means to explore the complexities associated with lab results
Mike is a forensic toxicology and data science consultant with a focus on interpretation & education for the utilization of modern statistical approaches and machine learning to interpret multi-variant chemical data. Primary consulting experience with private companies, litigation firms, regulatory agencies, oil & gas, chemical industry, and academia.
His expertise has helped organizations make sense of big data and come up with well-informed, data-driven, strategic decisions.
Environmental forensics rely on the integration of multi-disciplinary expertise centering on understanding the fate and contaminant of chemical contaminants. One of the key aspects that us chemist provide is the ability to connect the physical -chemical properties with what is observed on the site
CHEMOMETRICS AND DATASCIENCE
The rapid advancement and increased ability to resolve chemical components has superseded the common procedures for forensic data analysis. Chemometrics is a disciplined blended in data science that aims to efficiently extract information from the expanding inventory of measurable chemicals.
Chemical exposure in human and wildlife is often determined through the measurement of known contaminants and/or their metabolites in matrices such as tissue, blood, milk and urine. Most samples will have measured values due to extreme sensitives of the analytical instruments, however interpretation lies in multi-disciplinary approaches to understand exposure.
CUSTOM DASHBOARDS & DATA VISUALIZATION
Interactive data visualizations through my JMP profile with source code that can be found on the GitHub Page.
Provides state of the art analysis and consulting for detection of ignitable liquid residues (ILRs) for arson investigations and arsonous wildfire investigations. Through the mix of data science and analytical chemistry I can help determine presence, absence and forensic identification of sources of ignitable liquid residues.
