Title @Even: Co-founder & CTO

A little bit about me:

While getting my academic start in philosophy, I quickly realised my mistake and jumped on the Machine Learning (ML) bandwagon in 2013, before it was cool. From then on I worked on ML for neuroscience, applied it in the real world at a London startup and started a PhD in the same field at the University of Cambridge and the Max Planck Institute. During the PhD though, I got tired of tuning models to extract an extra percentage point of accuracy on the problems that had no real-world impact.

Thatโ€™s when I started talking with Mati and Mayank about what is now Even. I wanted to work on meaningful, complex problems, using data and a mathematical approach, and few problems are more meaningful and complex than the lack of healthcare cover in India.

When Iโ€™m not tuning models or pretending to understand complicated maths, you will probably find me near the sea, scuba diving or falling off a windsurf.
