He began his career at Real Chemistry, using machine learning NLP models to understand how patients were using and discussing various types of drugs in a non-clinical setting. Additionally, he worked on segmenting a brand’s social media followers by interest, allowing them to better reach the total addressable market. He then went on to work in finance and banking, where he built models to provide refinancing leads by predicting mortgagor prepayments six months in advance based on loan-specific and macro-economic factors.
