Ian Deters
Mathematician, Data Scientist, Teacher

My proclivity and ability lies in the application of mathematics, statistics, and computer science to the solution of business problems.  I hold a PH.D in theoretical mathematics and the ACAS designation from the Casualty Actuarial Society.  My research focuses on the application of theoretical mathematics to machine learning. This has led to increased model precision while retaining model perspicuity and faster model calibrations.  My current focus is on the insurance industry where I lead the Data Science division of MedPro Group.  There I lead a team which researches and builds generalized linear and neural network models to address operational challenges, reserving, and the setting of rate relativities.

Previously, I taught undergraduate mathematics courses for over six years. The content of these courses ranged from freshman mathematics to abstract algebra. I have produced original, published research in pure and actuarial mathematics. Finally, I have also been the heavy metal director at a radio station, a programmer in IT, and an analyst in the retail industry.
