About Udi

I'm a technical co-founder. My background is in machine learning, data science and software development.
I'm currently working as Director of Data Science for a startup called ForwardLane. In the past few years I've worked as a data scientist for various organizations: from large corporations (Morgan Stanley, AIG) to startups (Warby Parker, Freshly). Prior to that I used to work as a software engineer for various companies. I have a Ph.D. in Machine Learning and Evolutionary Computation from University College London and a M.Sc. in Computer Science from New York University.

I'm particularly interested in healthcare or medical application of machine learning/data science but also open to other interesting ideas. Please reach out to me if you're interested in a collaboration.
