Machine Learning and Data Science are amazing tools. With these skills in your belt you can work in industries as varied as Tech, Chemistry, or Engineering. Let me help you master these technical skills so that you can accomplish amazing things.

In my career, Machine Learning techniques have helped me improve Amazon’s Alexa personal assistant; enabled automatic learning of the internal structure of words in multiple languages; and built speech recognition in multiple languages, including Korean, Hungarian, Turkish and Chinese.

For 8 years (2009-2018) I worked in industry as a Machine Learning Scientist specializing in Natural Language Processing and Speech Recognition. The last 5 of those at Amazon improving the Alexa personal assistant. During the 2000’s I was a graduate student at Carnegie Mellon University and a postdoc at Oregon Health & Science University working in Natural Language Processing. For my Ph.D. thesis I designed a machine learning algorithm that automatically learns the morphological structure of words in any language. I completed my Bachelor’s in Computer Science, with minors in Math and Physics, from Brigham Young University in 2000.

While the technical aspects of the algorithms I developed in academia and industry are interesting, I enjoy teaching these skills to others at least as much as practicing them myself. I have led group and one-on-one training sessions on machine learning and natural language processing in industry. At Amazon, I taught not only fellow scientists, but personnel and project managers, as well as software engineers. As a postdoc I mentored high school students in Natural Language Processing. And as an undergraduate and graduate student I was a teaching assistant for multiple classes.

Whether you need to brush up on the theory and practice of machine learning before an interview, improve your understanding of math or physics for a class at school, or internalize the fundamentals of machine learning, please consider me as your mentor and coach.

Christian is a wonderful mentor. Every minute spent with him has been helpful in honing my career. Thank you very much!
