About Us

Rikin Mathur

Rikin Mathur is a Data Scientist at Komodo Health. He studied Electrical Engineering with a M.S from Columbia and B.S from University of Pittsburgh. But most of the data science he picked up was through his projects outside of school and at work. He has a lot of friends and family that are always confused about what he actually does. Since he likes to write, he is hoping that everyone can get an introduction to Data Science and finally understand a little bit of what they do.

A special thank you! to everyone who reviewed versions of this book and tested it on their kids 🙂
