I'm a data scientist at Highmark, Inc, working as the manager of predictive analystics and data management within Operations. I earned my PhD doing computational neuroscience, working with decision making processes and investigating functional connectivity between different parts of the human brain. I've also worked as a financial quant, freelance web developer, and IT consultant. One of my favorite pastimes is poi spinning.

You can learn more about me on my LinkedIn page. Feel free to contact me about anything and everything at eykanal at erikdev dot com.

comment Health benefits of numerous mini-exercise sessions per day
@Kate Two thoughts behind that: (1) do something that won't cause me to max out each set, and (2) do something that won't put me too out of breath, as I am supposed to be able to talk on the phone if necessary, and it would just be weird if it sounded like I was running. The exact number isn't as important; I'm more curious about the benefit of mini-exercises.

@Sancho - I'm referring to muscle firmness, enhanced stamina.
