My name is Mark Rieke and I am a data scientist at Game Data Pros, Inc. where I help design experiments and analyze test results from a Bayesian perspective. I love making beautiful charts, working on home improvement projects, and playing jazzy piano.

I earned my bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Tulsa in 2018. I worked with Siemens Energy for three years desiging mobile gas-turbine power plants before more moving into a more data-centric role at Memorial Hermann Health System, where I worked with survey data to measure and improve patient satisfaction. I currently use R, Stan, and Python to build systems for running and analyzing experiments on player behavior. In my spare time, I love analyzing public political datasets. You can find my work on GitHub and my unedited stream of consciousness on Twitter.

I live in Tulsa, OK, with my wife and two obnoxious yet lovable pets.
