Isaac Gelman

Hello!

I'm Isaac I grew up in San Diego and moved to Los Angeles to study at USC. I'm a graduate student, data scientist, and startup enthusiast.

I work on early stage machine learning and data analytics products for consumer-facing technology. In 2021, I'll be returning to computer vision startup Dragonfruit AI as a technical product manager (previously software engineer).

I'm interested in applied probability theory, algorithms, and complex systems. This leads me to courses like mathematical finance (stochastic calculus), dynamic modeling of random processes, and information theory. I've also enjoyed courses on Tolstoy's literature, intellectual property, and molecular biology.

I started this website in December 2020 to learn how to build a website and to share writings, linked below.
