I’m a data scientist and entrepreneur focused on building intelligent systems to collect information and enable better decisions. I specialize in solving hard algorithmic problems, leading cross-functional teams, and developing engaging products powered by data and machine learning. I’m currently working on a new startup based in San Francisco.

Previously, I applied my skills to the consumer internet space at LinkedIn, the world’s largest professional network, where I was an early member of the data science team. As Principal Data Scientist, I led data science teams focused on reputation, search, inferred identity and building data products. I was also the creator of LinkedIn Skills & LinkedIn Endorsements. Endorsements was one of the fastest growing new product features in LinkedIn’s history with over 3 billion endorsements of more than 70 million members within the first year after launch.

Before joining LinkedIn, I was Director of Analytics at Juice Analytics and a Senior Research Engineer at AOL Search. In a previous life, I developed price optimization models for Fortune 500 retailers, studied machine learning at MIT, and worked on Biodefense projects for DARPA and The Department of Defense. I have a B.S. in Mathematics and Physics from Brandeis University and research experience in Biology and Neuroscience.
