I'm most interested in very large scale discrete choice optimization problems in adtech & e-commerce.
I've started and invested in many startups over the years. As luck would have it, most have done very well. Currently, I'm the founder & CTO of Swoop where our goal is to delight consumers with targeted serendipity. Steve Jobs would have said it's magic. We say it's just good code mixed in with some common sense. I was raised in the Mathematica camp; never used MATLAB. I am a recent convert to R. I wish I'd known it when I was writing Monte Carlo simulations of angel investor portfolio returns a couple of years ago. A long time ago I was an economist and soft AI tinkerer. Though I love cooking, I try to stay away from the data kitchen.
