Dhafer Malouche

Welcome to my website. I will be sharing my recent courses materials, papers, projects, and talks with you.

I use R, Python, H2O, and Spark for my everyday work. On this website, I will be sharing many R and Python codes where I show how one can use this software to solve Machine Learning, Statistical Modeling, and Data Visualization problems. I would greatly appreciate all feedback, comments, and questions.

So feel free to contact me
