Ben Tasker owns his own consulting business, where he enjoys solving complex data science problems with innovative solutions for clients ranging from Fortune 500 companies, small businesses and even the White House. He believes any company can reach the next phase of machine learning, artificial intelligence or even basic data analytics and enthusiastically provides that expertise to his clients. He applies this knowledge daily as a technical program facilitator at Southern New Hampshire University, where he creates cutting edge data science programs. Ben also holds a clinical Professorship at the College System of New Hampshire, where he teaches data science topics at both the undergraduate and graduate level.
Before he ventured into consulting and education, he was the manager of analytics and data warehousing for the Community College System of NH, where he managed 12 data scientists and helped developed an algorithm that kept students enrolled in college, flagging the students at the highest risk of failure. This flag allowed the colleges to deploy resources for each of those students, ultimately helping them complete college. He also earned a MS in Data Analytics and Data Science from the University of New Hampshire. In his free time, Ben can be found at his local Crossfit Gym, doing box jumps, hang power cleans and kettle bell swings.
