Tanner Barbour

Tanner B. Barbour, BS recently obtained a bachelor’s degree in Human Nutrition, Foods, and Exercise (HNFE) from Virginia Tech in May 2023. He began volunteering with the Center for Biostatistics & Health Data Science (CBHDS) in late 2022, and also was mentored by CBHDS team members through an independent study in the Spring 2023 semester that looked to build an encoder-decoder model architecture that utilizes discharge summaries from the electronic health record to make DRG code predictions. Tanner was also responsible for data cleaning and visualization of the data utilized in this project. He has since moved into the role of Data Scientist at CBHDS, where he will assist with tasks and assignments related to study design, data management, statistical analysis, manuscript preparation, randomization scheme generation, and clinical study reporting.
