During the day, I forecast sales at supermarkets, drugstores, furniture, perfume and other retailers and calculate order proposals. Lots of time series, with an emphasis on fast, automatic and robust data cleansing and forecasting - with some logistical optimization thrown in for good measure. I'm active in the International Institute of Forecasters and an Associate Editor for their practitioner-oriented journal Foresight.
At night, I switch hats and do inferential statistics for clinical and biological psychology.
I'm never bored. And I use R.
