I currently work at DataXu as a Senior Data Scientist and Machine Learning Engineer, where I design and build machine learning and statistical algorithms for programmatic bidding, portfolio management and campaign optimization. Prior to DataXu, I was a Scientist at Raytheon BBN Technologies where I lead the machine learning efforts for the Neuroanalysis research group.
I defended my Ph.D. in Computer Science at Tufts University in the summer of 2012 where my advisor was Eric Miller. My Ph.D. research focused on statistical machine learning models and optimization methods for computer vision with applications to image and video segmentation.
For most of my Ph.D. (2008-2012), I was a Research Fellow at Harvard University, working full-time at the Center for Brain Science with Professors Hanspeter Pfister and Jeff Lichtman on The Connectome Project.
