A bold new global university, teaching 21st century skills in tech-driven seminar classrooms. Member of the first graduating class with a <2% acceptance rate, graduating 2019.
I recently worked on problems ranging from music generation with Genetic Programming, topic modeling in search and NLP, computer vision as well as modern causal inference work.
I have four years of experience building web tools, mobile apps and algorithms for various use cases. I particularly enjoy prototyping new and bold ideas and creating data driven applications.
In cooperation with a design team at the Internet giant Naver in Korea, we developed a concept and prototype for a new mobile service targeted at foreign visitors in Korea. The prototype is a React Native mobile app including an interactive map.
An sklearn compatible python package that implements and explores improvements for a new efficient algorithm to estimate nearly ideal seeding values for KMeans using Markov Chain Monte Carlo methods.
I predict the weekly CO2 concentration in the atmosphere at Mauna Loa observatory in Hawaii using historical time series data to fit a Bayesian model with longterm and seasonal component.
An Android app with a Node backend that allows users to search available listings that match their arbitrarily complex preferences and to subscribe to notifications for any new available listing that they'd be interested in. 1000+ active users.
I contributed to the website redesign, building new interactive and dynamic blocks for the CMS.
Additionally I developed a web tool to monitor website performance globally and alert slack of any changes in load time in any target region and an open-sourced plugin to the CMS that keeps track of visual changes in the front end after content updates.
A django platform that surveys users about their preference for complex accident scenarios and creates a model of their preference behavior according to different novel techniques (including genetic programming and probabilistic methods). An active ML algorithm only asks the most informative questions tailored to each specific user. Part of a larger research project into modeling decision processes surrounding dilemma situations.
Adrian's ability to ingest, master and act on information about vastly different problem areas (moral psychology, neuroscience, machine learning, search, ...) on a compressed timescale is stunning. Adding his coding skills to the mix makes him the perfect collaborator for dealing with the toughest scientific and technological problems.
He continually exceeded my expectations for learning new technologies, quickly delivering projects on existing codebases, and building new tools. He was consistently communicative and able to self-start and self-organize, proactively soliciting and managing additional requirements and feedback. (...) Adrian is incredibly sharp and a real pleasure to work with!
Adrian was an incredible contributor to our team. He went (...) to full-fledged member of the dev team during his summer work with us. He was (...) incredibly thorough and diligent in his work. On top of that he's a joy to work with!
Having worked with Adrian in 2016 all I can say is wow. His work ethic is tireless, his combination of technical & product acumen is in a class by itself, and he's a great guy. I recommend him highly and would hire him again in a heartbeat
A short documentary of my work with the Ministry of Education in the Argentina. In a team of four students we designed and proposed a new platform to improve the teacher situation and quality of education across rural Argentina.
A case study about my involvement in the #gottago project at Naver. The article details how we generated and refined the app concept and later developed and presented the prototype to Naver executives.
A newspaper feature about my experience at Minerva Schools at KGI in San Francisco and other recent projects I've been involved with.
A documentary video about my involvement with ReliXChange, a project bringing together young Germans and Egyptians to discuss how to bring different religions and North Africa and Western Europe closer together.
