I am an entrepreneur, a divergent thinker and an inquisitive data scientist. My primary focus is knowledge-based systems that automate knowledge acquisition, reasoning and representation. I am also passionate about applications of computer intelligence and technology in education and social innovation. I am currently working on Karotene, a knowledge platform, that is reimagining how humans interact with knowledge. I am also part of the Cognition, Robotics and Learning (CoRaL) Lab at University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
In the past, I co-founded Teller, a bay area FinTech startup, and contributed to envisioning an inclusive financial ecosystem. Prior to that, I developed various proof-of-concept automation systems, a continuous learning fraud detection method and a patented peer-to-peer lending algorithm at PayPal Inc.
