Welcome to EricSayre.com. Eric C. Sayre, PhD is a statistician, researcher, author and programmer currently living in Vancouver, BC. He began working professionally in the field of statistics in 1997, and has worked on a contractual basis for Arthritis Research Canada since 2000. Beginning in 2002, he went back to complete two graduate degrees while remaining active in the research community. He completed his PhD in the Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science at Simon Fraser University in 2009. Eric has also been interested in Machine Learning, and thus far has completed Introduction to Data Science in Python by University of Michigan on Coursera, and Machine Learning by Stanford University on Coursera. He is also delving into cryptocurrency application development.

Since 1997, Eric has also been a statistical consultant/collaborator for a variety of clinical and epidemiological research groups, in both health research as well as various private industry projects. I am experienced in a variety of programming languages, databases, statistical packages, blockchain development environments, and other software, including SAS (expert), R, Solidity, React, Python, Rust, Parscale, C++, Octave, Microsoft SQL, VB Script, Active Server Pages (ASP), HTML, Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access and Outlook), EndNote, to name but a few.

Eric is a well-published researcher, with over 300 publications since 1997. These are a mixture of first-authorships and coauthorships on articles published in peer-reviewed medical journals, abstracts presented at scientific meetings, research reports, invited talks and his own two graduate theses.

Variable-Weighted Ultrametric Optimization for Mixed-Type Data (VWUO-MD) In Eric's PhD research, he developed a new method of unsupervised learning (hypothesis generation) designed specifically for mixed-type data (continuous, ordinal, nominal, binary symmetric and binary asymmetric), along with data mining software to perform the analyses. Variable-Weighted Ultrametric Optimization for Mixed-Type Data (VWUO-MD) is useful in identifying new, complex relationships between variables of many different kinds, for example between a multitude of health conditions, socio-economic and geographic factors, and health services utilization patterns. VWUO-MD is a valuable tool for exploiting the increasing multitude of highly multivariate, mixed-type databases available to researchers and industry, in developing new, previously unthought-of hypotheses.

Go-fund-me - Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (HSCT) for Rubiana

← Please read her story as it will move you to tears, but also inspire great hope.

I have launched a go-fund-me for Rubi to try to get her a life-saving operation. Details are in the campaign itself. Can you please take a few minutes out of your busy day to share this with as many people as possible? Perhaps just one quick post on facebook, twitter, instagram, and any other social media? This would help a great deal to gain traction.

Is this all marketing mumbo jumbo?

NO. This is real science, as two recent Canadian clinical trials demonstrate. It just so happens the Mexicans are 20 years ahead of Canada in this area.
