Alex Knittel - Data Scientist


Welcome to my personal webpage. I am a Data Scientist in San Francisco.

I have a strong mathematical background. I received my BA in Economics/Mathematics from UCSB and had the top graduating GPA in my major. I co-founded a startup called Napses out of college. We won 3rd place in the New Venture Competition and also launched our platform to paying university students. I spent 3+ years working as a risk analyst and was promoted to manager after the first 2. More recently, I have shifted focus to pursue a passion in machine learning algorithms. I completed the Galvanize Data Science immersive program and a capstone project in accent detection through audio analysis. I also recently competed in the Developerweek Hackathon and placed 2nd with our project called Gauge.
