About me


Currently I am working on Microsoft HoloLens and building The Breakout Analytics.

My personal philosophy is every idea can be accessible to everybody. Numbers have always been my means of understanding the world, and in my work I aim to make the same ideas accessible to others.

At Microsoft HoloLens, I use data to understand the larger picture of how computer vision algorithms and humans interact. Working with scientists and engineers alike, I synthesize data to answer questions like "How distorted is a hologram?" and "Are my algorithms telling me the truth about the world?".

My work spans the entire data process. I help collect, ingest, process, massage, structure, and analyze data. I work with field agents, software engineers, product managers, and scientists alike. And to answer these questions, my work changes every day, requiring work that spans data science, computer vision, cloud computing, infrastructure development, and much more.

I graduated from Cornell University studying Computer Science and Business, having the pleasure of working with great people on projects in music recommendation and virtual voice assistants. My projects have involved several machine learning methods including neural network implementations (DeepNets & RNN's), reinforcement learning, and probabalistic modeling (hidden markov & graphical models).

Most of all, I love sports and engaging with the analytics community. That's why I created the Breakout with Leo Xia. We drive easily understandable analytics content and even develop models to evaluate college prospects. You can find our work on Twitter, Youtube, and TikTok.
