I am inspired by discovering the world using mathematical and scientific methods in a broad range of domains. I bring an intuitive and creative ability to rigorous research, and a down to earth communicative style to technical fields.
A programmer first, I started my career as an object oriented application developer and never lost my love for well designed code. A true scientist, I earned a PhD from the California Institute of Technology and have first author publications in leading Machine Learning and Neuroscience journals. A systems architect, I have built production quality scientific applications during my tenure as as Wall Street quant. A data scientist, I now use a variety of modern tools and techniques to analyze data produced by online systems.
