in computing science, worked on advanced computing research projects for DARPA (the U.S. government’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency), and joined or founded nearly half a dozen startups spanning behaviorally targeted ads, financial risk management insights, identity theft detection, and online streaming and recommendations for music, movies and TV.
