Lead Data Science Instructor, General Assembly

He recently escaped the world of consulting, where he worked in litigation analytics helping lawyers win cases with data. Prior to his work in industry, he earned his Master’s degree in statistics. His graduate research focused on statistical programming and machine learning, something he’s still passionate about today. His motivation for teaching is to make the things he finds interesting just as interesting and accessible to everyone else.

When not thinking about programming or math, Tim spends his free time reading sci-fi/fantasy and theorizing on how to construct the perfect omelette. He plays a mean game of pool, too.
