Hello! My name is Chris Shymansky, a Data Science Fellow at Insight Health.
My main interests are using data to solve societal/business problems and understanding what we can know using data and how well we can know it.
Chargemaster, my Insight project, is an AWS-hosted Flask web app that projects Californian hospital service prices using publically-available data from the state of California and common Data Science technologies.
I obtained my Ph.D in chemical engineering at U.C. Berkeley while working at the Joint BioEnergy Institute under Jay Keasling. My graduate work involved applying network flow mathematics to messy data to study biofuel production and sugar metabolism in baker's yeast.
