Isaac Gelman


I'm Isaac I grew up in San Diego and moved to Los Angeles to study at USC. I'm a graduate student studying machine learning and mathematics.

I work on early stage machine learning and data analytics products. Currently working on video analytics and product management Dragonfruit AI (previously software engineer).

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

Fun stuff: skiing ◆◆, rucking, and Muay Thai. I spend much of my time being physically active or reading.

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