Sven Kreiss in front of Freedom Tower.

I am a Data Scientist at Sidewalk Labs in New York City where I support our portfolio and incubating companies on the data science and engineering side. My background is in Particle Physics where I hold a PhD from NYU and where I worked with Kyle Cranmer on physics analyses at ATLAS and the statistical analysis tool RooStats which is part of CERN’s Root Data Analysis tool. My ATLAS work at CERN was focused on the Higgs Boson discovery.
