Hello and thank you for checking out my course. I have a B.Sc, M.Sc and PhD in computer science from University of California, San Diego and University of Houston respectively.
I'm an experienced machine learning specialist. I enjoy working on various aspects of machine learning problems, high-dimensional statistics and predictive analytics with a main focus on developing and analyzing learning algorithms for imbalanced data. I am especially interested in understanding and exploiting the intrinsic structure in data (e.g. manifold or sparse structure) to design more effective learning algorithms.
I am an entrepreneur who wants to use technology to improve people's lives and an educator who wants to turn technology consumers into technology builders.
My Method: The first step is always simply noticing a problem that already exists. What could be changed or improved about the way we currently do things to make them easier, cheaper, more efficient or helpful? Next begins the ongoing process of gathering insight. What do people closest to the issue see as the hurdles? How can we collaborate to understand the problem in its most basic form? Third, I map out a clear path from what we have now to a better solution. Finally, I work relentlessly, tirelessly, to come up with an answer while being flexible enough to take criticism and firm enough to stay driven.
