Trevor is a life-long teacher who stresses the importance of model interpretability as it pertains to business practices.
Trevor has taught the Metis Bootcamp with our Corporate Training team at the AI Institute of Advanced Studies in Riyadh, KSA. He has a BA in Mathematics from the Courant Institute of Mathematics at New York University. Before Metis, Trevor was at IAA Capital Management, where he incrementally introduced Machine Learning techniques to the analysis of financial markets. At every step of implementation, he built a proof-of-concept to demonstrate the added value. The biggest takeaway from his experience would be the ability to account for unknown-unknowns; an invaluable but often unaccounted for skill that prepares predictive models for what we haven’t before experienced. In his spare time, he is an avid reader and strong believer in the (added) effects of physical exercise and mindfulness on “life performance”.
