Isaac Gelman


I'm Isaac I grew up in San Diego and moved to Los Angeles to study at USC. I'm a sales/product engineering intern at Dragonfruit AI and studying for a BS + MS in math and computing at USC. I will graduate in May 2022.

I previously worked on the core machine learning team at Dragonfruit, where I helped revamp their core object detection and object tracking platform.

I was also a data engineering intern at Rehinged AI and at Milliman, a healthcare management consulting firm.

I enjoy studying applied probability theory, algorithms, and emerging technologies.

Fun stuff: skiing ◆◆, rucking, and Muay Thai. I spend much of my time hiking with friends and reading interesting books.

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