I am currently a Senior Data Scientist at Honey. My focus is on recommender systems for online shopping along with improving search for products.
I worked on building a recommender system for news articles utilizing online learning (see the talk I gave about it here) at my last company, Tribune Publishing.
I focus primarily on natural language processing, recommender systems, and scaling algorithms in production (making me essentially a machine learning engineer most of the time).
I have also completed my Ph.D. at Texas A&M University in Atmospheric Science. My research focused on numerical climate and weather prediction. More specifically, I was investigating the performance of regional and global coupled models in how they resolve the interaction between the ocean and the atmosphere at high resolutions.
