You Should Know About Me

Key Strengths

Machine learning • Natural language processing • Statistics • Quantitative Finance • Derivatives

Key Accomplishments

Applied Machine Learning. My experience is in math, physics, quantitative finance, and data mining. I like to apply machine learning techniques to new fields, and discover interesting patterns.

Specialities: Data Science, programming, statistics, big data sets,

I would describe myself as someone who has a very strong math / analytics background, and equally strong programming skills. My first non-academic position was in quantitative finance at Markit, where I built quantitative pricing models for financial derivatives. I then left to start an algorithmic trading hedge fund, where I developed a love for applied machine learning. After the Japan Tsunami (which we can discuss over drinks) I joined 81qd (a data-mining company based in midtown New York) where I currently work as a research engineer with a focus on Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning. More recently, I took a "Data Science" class at General Assembly, where I sharpened my data munging skills.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Very Strong Data Science Background + Machine Learning + Big Data knowledge
