You Should Know About Me

Key Accomplishments

I'm fully immersed in the world of start-up and entrepreneurship. DataNovo is such an interesting beast! The data we're mining is completely new, as it is the result of the 2011 AIA legislation and its patent litigation reform implementation in 2012. So, as a scientist, I am literally watching statistics being created every day and I get to see how these numbers change. It is extremely exciting.

At the same time, we see an impressive future to this data as it can make a huge sea-change to the whole patent and litigation process. I'd love to write this part down, but it's quite revolutionary and I can't go spilling the beans.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

We already have co-founders. I'm an "early employee." We're looking for advisors to double check our math and perhaps offer other ways to see the data. I have a PhD in math, but not in statistics, so I'm not acquainted with a lot of higher-level statistical nuances. But, I can quickly grasp the ideas when presented to me.

We have one other person who has some statistical analysis background. He will graduate college this spring in that field.

If you have experience in big data and want to be the Billy Bean for patent litigation (Billy Bean is the GM of the Oakland A's and his use of data via sabermetrics was profiled in the movie Money Ball with Brad Pitt), we are going to do some earth-shaking stuff. This is super cool stuff, and the team is very easy to work with, despite the members being scattered all over the world.
