Student Spotlight: Suma Krishnaprasad

Krishna Prasad

Meet Suma Krishnaprasad

Data Scientist, Cleveland Clinic

Suma Krishnaprasad was the first data scientist hired at Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi. She works to develop and deploy predictive models, and also to provide statistical design and analysis for dozens of clinical trials and other research projects. She came to the Institute for Statistics Education initially for a number of courses in biostatistics, then enrolled in the Analytics for Data Science certificate program. She came to us to refresh her statistical knowledge, to better position herself in her pioneering role at the Clinic. Among the courses she took was our Sample Size and Power Determination course, which helped her understand when to apply which technique, and gave her greater confidence in calculating sample sizes for the Clinic’s studies.
