I have been working towards a career in data science for the past four years, both professionally and academically. I believe there is a large need across the industry to understand the customer experience, and 'gut feel' doesn't explain things well enough; a proper use of statistics allows us to better explore why things happen. Also I love working math and feel that traditional software development doesn't include enough of it.

I work with machine learning algorithms to build predictive models that describe the behavior of a system. I have recent experience applying algorithms to pre-classification of documents, unsupervised clustering of data elements, and some linear programming experience.

I also study type-theory and implement toy compilers to learn more about it.
