Sven Kreiss in front of Freedom Tower.

I am a Data Scientist at Sidewalk Labs in New York City where I focus on Machine Learning for urban environments. My background is in Particle Physics where I hold a PhD from NYU and where I worked with Kyle Cranmer on physics and statistical analyses for ATLAS with a particular focus on the Higgs Boson discovery.
