I’m a founding partner at DCVC, the world’s leading machine learning and big data venture capital fund, where I start and invest in finance and machine learning ventures.

I’ve founded two machine learning startups since 2009. At Prismatic, we used Machine learning for personalized ranking based on social and content interaction, and Natural Language Processing for topic and entity classification. At Flightcaster, we used machine learning for predicting the state of the real time global air traffic network using FAA, carrier, and weather data.

I’ve been a hedge fund investor since 2002, starting with statistical value and momentum strategies at O’Higgins Asset Management, and a venture investor since 2010 as a founding partner of Data Collective.

I’ve spent 7 years building statistical trading strategies, 6 years building machine learning startups, and 8 years on systems engineering including 2 years working on distributed systems at Google. I studied Computer Engineering and Finance at Virginia Tech, and Mathematics at Berkeley.
