Biography

My research interests lie in understanding our world in intersections of the environment, society and technologies. In particular, I’m interested in creating and enabling efficient solutions using the data science toolbox including but not limited to Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Causal Inference & Experimentation, Data Visualizations and Geographic Information System.
I see our complex world as an infinite continuum of connected events that we are constantly trying to understand in order to make informed decisions. As Griffiths Rev. in A world in a grain of sand puts it: ‘The advancing coastline pushed people inland, forcing local crowding, the mixing of cultures, and, most likely, causing conflict’.
My hobbies can be summed up in 3 words: trying new things. I do believe that life is like a box of chocolate, you never know what you’re going to get.
