Hello, I'm Saif

Developer + Quant + Investor && Native Brooklynite

Interests

Capital Markets

I spent 15 years on Wall Street, mostly in quantitative roles. I love numbers, time series analysis and generating alpha. Opportunities to moderninze finance and markets excite me. I do Principal investments via Maiden Voyage Venture Group.

Advancing Human Health

Improving human health, especially via diagnostic imaging, is my academic interest and current full-time endeavor. We're doing pretty cool stuff at DocHuddle, Inc. applying deep learning to medical image classification for consistent, instant, and inexpensive pre-diagnoses.

Technology + CV + Machine Learning

My secret weapon -- I'm good at it, seriously good. It helps me accomplish extraordinarily difficult goals anywhere I place focus. I'm currently applying this to medicine, but other applications also excite me, specifically CV+ML for autonomous vehicles and CV+ML for data-driven investments.

Work

It is simple...I can make things happen. I recently switched industries, leaving behind 15+ years on Wall Street to work in a clinical research setting. The horizontals remains the same though -- data analysis, machine learning, model building, model tuning, predictive analytics, integration, prototyping, hacking and getting stuff done.

I'm very well educated, well read, informed, and networked. So with all that, I can make things happen; and I have, over and over with many teams.
