About Dr. Baidoo

Dr. Edwin Baidoo is a data scientist with a focus in the finance, credit and insurance space. My research uses tools in data science to study credit and lending models. Specifically, I design models that maximize profit – called profit scoring. I also look at the same paradigm from a utility based approach, borrowing heavily from finance. At Tech, it has been my privilege to teach Business Analytics, Advanced Business Analytics with Python and a capstone class. I am also a co-PI at the iCube Innovation Center, where we partner with the State of Tennessee Department of Health to study and understand trends in road safety accidents. My interests are broad and includes Parallel Computing, Finance, Mathematics, Economics and Actuarial Science. I am always excited to work with anyone – especially on a topic that is new to me. I love learning new things.
