Dr. Edwin Baidoo is a data scientist with a focus on the finance, credit, and insurance space. His research uses tools in data science to study credit and lending models. Specifically, he design models that maximize profit – called profit scoring. He also looks at the same paradigm from a utility-based approach, borrowing heavily from finance.
