Who I am and What I do
I'm re-employed! I'm a Renaissance Technologies employee again, Act III. I
was head of production for the better part of a decade. I moved to
Philadelphia to be a house-husband and part-time researcher for
Renaissance. Then I took a two-year sabbatical to dabble in venture
capital. Now I'm returning to Renaissance as a tele-commuting
researcher in the Futures research group.
I am also the founder and president of The Kohelet Foundation, a
private foundation focused on Jewish education. Our two main projects
Fellowships and Kohelet Yeshiva
High School (formerly Stern Hebrew High School).
I'm involved in a number of local and national Jewish philanthropic
efforts, including Partners
In Torah (which operates Jewpiter for Birthright alums), In His Image, The Chevra, and Jewish day schools in
the Philadelphia area. I'm also on the board of the National Math Museum, founded by
Glen Whitney, a former Renaissance colleague.
Earlier in my academic career, I did research on the
statistical natural language parsing problem, culminating in my
thesis, entitled Natural Language
Processing as Statistical Pattern Recognition. Here's a list of the rest of my publications.
