Data analysis developed mostly in R using Python and other tools when needed. Highly experienced in classical to modern statistical analysis (EDA, linear regression, ANOVA), multivariate analysis using ordination methods (mostly MDS classification), and machine learning algorithms for prediction and identification of patterns (mostly regression and classification trees). Experience with time series analysis (time and frequency domains) for meteorological, oceanographic, and RS data for more than 20 environmental impact assessments and baseline studies. Skilled in analysis of complex geospatial layers to model and evaluate human impacts on marine ecosystems, design pipeline routes and coastal facilities for the oil industry, and to configure a system for the selection of priority conservation areas.
