Saif is the Head of Data at SwarmX, where he is developing data products connected to drone hardware. He's been working with data science for over 7 years, in both consulting and start-up environments. He first fell in love with data and statistics in his college days, and worked with 'big data' before it was cool. Starting off as a Type A ('Analysis') data scientist, he's been picking up Type B ('Builder') skills, and recently discovered the magic of Python generators (look it up!).
Saif is passionate about using data to solve new and exciting problems, and is excited to introduce students to the wonders of data. His technical interests include deep learning, bandit algorithms, and recommendation engines. In his spare time, he enjoys photography, traveling, playing squash, and learning more about technology and entrepreneurship.
