Data Science @ Yonder Credit Card
Yonder is a cool London start-up that's being called "the Monzo of reward credit cards". Personally, I use it to get free delicious food and quality times with friends.
Having been rejected by countless consultancies' algorithms, I made an oath to never use data to discriminate. Now, as Yonder's first Data Scientist, I build machine learning models that help Yonder "make money rewarding and credit empowering" - from making better lending decisions, to personalising reward experiences.
Freelance Research @ Cambridge
In my spare time I work with researchers around the world on cool social science topics, affiliating with the Social Decision-Making Lab at the University of Cambridge.
My current interest is in the collective behaviours of AI chatbots - do they behave like humans in a society? And if so, can we use them to predict which meme goes more viral, how do echo chambers form, and how to make our societies and organiations better?
To spare others of the nerdy stuff, please reach out if you want to know more!
Patron of Selwyn College, Cambridge
The summer research experience during my undergrad changed my life. So, the moment I got a job, I donated to my alma mater to set up an undergrad research fund:
Interdisciplinary research is heavily underfunded in the UK, especially at the undergraduate level. These research opportunities not just help students to learn hard transferable skills, build connections and portfolio; they also foster the interdisciplinary creativity crucial in this age of AI.
They certainly helped me when I was a confused undergrad. Without that first summer staying in college doing otherwise unfunded research, nothing I have right now would be possible.
