Bio: 

Since the start of my career 15 years ago, I’ve explored various aspects of how humans and machines can work together - AI / Machine Learning, human-computer interaction, semantic reasoning, etc. At first it was about the technology and how to advance its capability, but has shifted more towards the role of humans and how to maximize their performance within a complex system of automation and AI. As an early employee at DataRobot, I’ve had the opportunity to lead and grow many teams - Release, QA, Test Automation, Developer Experience, Developer Enablement and Engineering Productivity - and am passionate about enabling developers to succeed. I love coding, breaking things, and making things more usable.
