What we do
STATISTICS AND DATA ANALYTICS
No matter the study design and data-generating process, statistical inference adds depth and nuance to the analysis in a way that superficial, descriptive analytics can’t.
Data engineering provides the infrastructure and methods for sourcing, transporting, storing and wrangling data. Without it, data analytics rapidly turns into a house of cards.
Whether your medium is a dashboard, slide deck or scientific paper, presenting insights in an engaging, intuitive and actionable way is key to achieving the largest impact.
What we stand for
Let us help you translate data into actionable information.
Whether you want to run complex, computationally intensive workloads or routine reports and dashboards, Wimmy makes them run faster and with less human effort so that you can achieve more with less time and money.
The desire to reduce uncertainty and learn from the past is deeply ingrained in all of us. We just love using data, analytics, models and visual narratives to get clearer vision and more control over the future.
Our identity is shaped by what we mean to others. At Wimmy, this translates into our relentless striving to maintain our recognition as masters in our craft, creative collaborators, reliable wing-men and inspiring educators.
Meet Our TEam
One team many talents
diversity by design
Our team represents a diversity of skillsets, backgrounds and geographies. This gives us a broader technical scope, a richer vocabulary to engage with our clients, and a more global perspective on problems and solutions.
Founder and Co-Director
I trained as a medical doctor and hold a PhD in computational epidemiology. My career path has led me to become proficient in statistical programming, data science and high performance computing. I love teaching, team work, and applying cutting-edge methods to solve complex problems.
Medical Consultant and Co-Director
I am a family physician with a passion for community orientated primary care, chronic disease management and being a mentor to medical professionals who seek self-empowerment in an ever-changing landscape of challenges and leverage points in public health.
Data Science Consultant
I am a social anthropologist / epidemiologist turned data scientist. I hold a PhD in Health Sciences and I am a specialist in data wrangling, creating clean, reproducible, and legible code, and applying biostatistical methods to answer questions in epidemiology.
Data Science Consultant
I am a data scientist with an undergraduate degree in Mathematics and Statistics and two master’s degrees in Mathematical Sciences and Mathematics. I love building models to transform raw data into insights, and using data visualisations to communicate their meaning and implications.
I hold degrees in Physics, Biochemistry and Bioinformatics. I am a deeply analytical thinker and strive for efficiency and pragmatism. I have almost 10 years experience at various roles and levels in the software and data industry.
Dr Maria Jose
Public Health Consultant
I am a medical doctor and public health specialist with 9 years of experience in primary, tertiary and clinical vaccine facilities as well as higher education teaching and research. I have majored in health economics and I’m a proponent of using human-centred design thinking for solving complex problems.
Prof Dr Mareli Claassens
I am a medical doctor and an epidemiologist with extensive research experience in infectious diseases that disproportionately affect poor people. I believe in a trans-disciplinary approach, and I love working closely with community members and other non-scientists.
Junior Microbiology Consultant
I am a young and inquisitive BSc graduate who is fascinated by the ever changing and hard-to-see worlds of molecular biology and biotechnology. I have a passion for teaching and learning and I enjoy making microbiology more understandable to a wider audience.
Dr Nicole du Plessis
I am a medical doctor with post graduate qualifications in emergency medicine and extensive experience across multiple clinical disciplines. I am passionate about evidence-based medicine and improving health through innovation in clinical medicine and healthcare administration.
WHat we excel in
There is something deeply satisfying about giving meaningful answers to intricate questions.
We are specialists in the science of data, health and computation, applying best practices in Automated Reporting, Data Analytics and Visualisation, Statistics, Model Simulations, Epidemiology, Supercomputing and Scientific Writing.
We make your data-intensive operation more scalable, less vulnerable to human error, and more time-efficient, traceable and reproducible.
Keeping data accessible yet secured, accurate and consistent, requires a suite of data architectures, policies, practices, and procedures. Neglect them and your data analysis is a house of cards. But get them right and your analytics will go from strength to strength at record pace.
Statistical inference from experimental or observational data gives the depth and nuance that superficial data explorations can’t. Statistical models go beyond pointing out what you already know, as they reveal where the uncertainties lie.
The result of the computational or statistical analysis may change, but the recipes stay the same. We avoid time-consuming and fallible manual procedures, and instead develop automatable scripts for data cleaning, wrangling, analysis and reporting.
Courses and workshops
Learning is most effective when done in an engaging, hands-on style, and when the content is relatable and applicable. This is how we develop and facilitate all of our courses and workshops, whether in data science, statistics, epidemic simulation modelling, or dashboard development.
High Performance Computing
Experienced in both on-prem high performance computing and virtual clusters in the cloud, we can iterate through data and models faster, so you spend less time waiting for results, and more time turning the results into actions.
Authority and thought leadership is authenticated by high quality scientific publications. We have over 15 years of experience with scientific writing, publishing in peer-reviewed journals, and presenting at international conferences.
Get in touch
Feel free to contact us if you have a query about the kind of analyses we can perform, the software we use, or the courses we could develop and teach.
We’re committed to reply to you within one business day, and follow up with a remote or in-person meeting when indicated.
