I build software that uses data to make great products.
At TellApart, I work to understand shopping behavior on behalf of our clients. Systems that I build include the Customer Quality Scoring engine that powers our e-marketing personalization products. These products generate $100+ million in annualized revenue. In my tenure at TellApart I've helped scale our data pipeline through orders of magnitude of rapid growth.
I earned a PhD in Computer Science from the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at the University of Michigan, where I specialized in machine learning, artificial intelligence, and cognitive science. My dissertation investigated how reinforcement learning agents learn to use biologically-inspired memories while learning to act in the world, and identified computational bounds for memory behaviors when learned via direct experience.
