Data analysis expert witness candidates typically have extensive experience and a background in big data, machine learning, digital forensics, computer science, data science, and/or have specialized knowledge in data analysis. While many experts have data analysis expertise, an expert witness carries the additional responsibility of providing testimony before the court in a manner whereby a judge and jury can understand the technology and digital evidence.
Data analysis is the process of applying statistical techniques to evaluate data, discover useful information, inform conclusions, and support decision-making. Often, matters requiring data analysis expert witness services involve intellectual property, such as patent infringement litigation or a trade secret dispute. Litigation support by a data analysis expert witness could include expert report preparation, expert opinion, and/or expert testimony. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, the litigators may require a data analysis specialist with prior expert witness testimony experience. In addition, clients often seek an industry expert for pre-litigation consulting work.

This expert is a computer scientist with many years of experience in Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning research. This expert’s research agenda focuses on applied machine learning, that is developing systems and innovative sensor data analysis methods for real world applications. Primary application domain for this expert’s work is computational behavior analysis where this expert develops methods for automated and objective behavior assessments in naturalistic environments. Main driving functions for this expert’s work are "in the wild" deployments and as such the development of systems and methods that have a real impact on peoples’ lives.
This expert’s research is focused on developing methods for sensor-based behavior analysis in which mobile and ubiquitous computing plays a key role. This expert uses a large variety of sensors including inertial measurement units (accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer), galvanic skin response sensors, barometers etc. and optical heart rate monitors to capture relevant physiological parameters that are then automatically analyzed in order to assess the health and wellbeing of a human. The sensors are typically integrated into mobile or wearable platforms such as smartphones and smart watches. With a formal education in technical computer science (with focus on electrical engineering) this expert possesses detailed knowledge of the physical and electrical principles underlying the various sensing modalities. The majority of this expert’s work is related to developing and deploying signal processing methods and machine learning techniques that allow for automated analysis of the sensed phenomena through software.
This expert has been teaching sensors and sensor data analysis for many years. Over the years this expert has taught hundreds of students the technical foundations of mobile and ubiquitous computing. Practical class projects as well as individual student projects focus on sensors and algorithmic sensor data analysis as the key component of context aware computing in general and health assessments in particular. This expert mentored a group of graduate students on a project that used pulse oximetry in a wrist-worn device to recognize altitude sickness in alpine climbers.
