I'm currently living and working in boston. I work within the office of data science at liberty mutual, where I focus on data mining and machine learning projects under scott gorlin. Prior to joining the office of data science, I spent two years on the data science team at warnermedia applied analytics developing tools to assist in data-driven decisions that were used for every WB release during my time there. In 2018, I graduated from boston university my masters in computer science. While there, I worked with evimaria terzi and babis tsourakakis on data science projects.
