Dr. Jim Dixon joined Linguamatics as an application specialist in January 2011. He first took advantage of text mining and NLP while working as a bioinformatician at Johnson & Johnson. His focus during this time was on target validation, biomarker discovery and disease pathways for areas such as cardiovascular, central nervous system and ocular diseases. Jim has a range of experience working with large amounts of information, from microarray data analysis during his postdoc, to reaction optimization software development for robotic chemistry workstations for his doctoral degree at North Carolina State University. He enjoys interacting with customers to understand their needs and applies text mining and NLP methods to transform their information into knowledge.
