In our first Chat with the Experts for 2021, RavenPack’s Senior Data
Scientist, Inna Grinis, joined Professor Yong Joo Kang, of Thompson
Rivers University where they discussed how the professor has been using
news analytics data, downloaded from RavenPack’s Covid Media Monitor, to
broach new ground in research.
No stranger to experimenting with alternative data, in one previous

means of measuring equity premium in South Korea’s borse. Here we will
get his take on our bespoke Coronavirus data and how academics and
business professionals can leverage it in their studies and models.
