Bio: Built the LinkedIn product analytics team from 2 to 10 data scientists. Spearheaded many of LinkedIn’s key products: the Talent Match system that matches jobs to candidates; the first machine learning model for People You May Know; and the first version of Groups You May Like. Ph.D. in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon.
Quotable quote: “By definition all scientists are data scientists. In my opinion, they are half hacker, half analyst, they use data to build products and find insights. It’s Columbus meet Columbo – starry eyed explorers and skeptical detectives.”
