ABOUT ME
I create predictive engines and other analytical products. I use many different kinds of machine learning algorithms. Much of my recent work is in the natural language processing (NLP) space. I teach two Codementor Live classes: Intro to Python, and Into to Machine Learning in Python. I work on projects in many areas including automated stock, futures and options trading, risk analysis, modeling and simulation, software and database architecture, and data conditioning. I enjoy teaching and focus on clear, effective, two-way communication. I am a native English speaker.
EXPERTISE
No icon Machine learning - 9 years experience
You can now find machine learning algorithms at work everywhere: private industry, government, and academia. I've been tackling tough machine learning problems in all three sectors as both a private consultant and staff data scientist. I can help you learn to apply this technology in an effective manner. I also teach the 8-hour live, online Machine Learning in Python course here at Codementor.
Python expert help Python - 5 years experience
Python is a fantastic general-purpose language. I maintain several large, professional (private) codebases. For prototyping data science projects, I like to use ipython-notebook with inline matplotlib. I also teach the 8 hour live, online Introduction to Python class here at Codementor.
No icon Scikit learn - 2 years experience
Scikit has very nice implementations of classifiers, linear models, clusterers, in a unified API. I use it for data exploration and prototyping models.
No icon R - 5 years experience
I use R as an analytical workhorse. I have a great deal of experience interfacing data both to and from R.
No icon Couchdb - 3 years experience
I have used CouchDB in my daily work, including CouchApps. It makes a fantastic dashboard architecture when combined with Javascript/HTML5 and a lightweight framework such as Backbone.js.
