Based in Los Altos, CA, but I travel to London.

Are you direclty involved in a data science project? Are you doing any data science hacking, development, implementation? Are you a quant? Data miner? Statistician? Software developer? IT engineer? BI Analyst?

Yes, researching use cases with rapid response queries on big data (Drill), applications for machine learning with Mahout , and designing training for MapR distribution for Hadoop

Why are you interested in joining this data science community?

I attended the Mahout-based Data Science London meetup 23 May 2012 with other Mahout in Action authors Sean Owen and Ted Dunning. I was very impressed with the enthusiasm and intelligence of this data science community. I follow events from the Bay Area and would be happy to attend another event in future.


I work in communicating and helping to shape ideas in data science, with particular interest in open source projects including Apache Mahout and Apache Drill and in the MapR distribution for Apache Hadoop. I'm a co-author of book Mahout in Action.
