A. Buabeng is an academic with specialisation in Mathematics (Statistics and Data Analytics). With over three years of experience in analysing and interpreting complex data, I am a committed statistician with a passion for data and information, extremely organised with a keen eye for detail. I have worked with various research experts; am very knowledgeable in using statistical tools and methodologies; adept in conducting field surveys; have a broad understanding of statistical concepts, methods, and above all knowledgeable in data mining and very skilful in using computer applications. Hence, I have consistently proven my ability to meet deadlines, achieve project objectives, solve mission-critical problems, and prioritise crucial tasks while maintaining the high standards expected of my role.
