José's Research

I currently work as a Senior Data Scientist at Chegg's Graph, Modeling and Personalization team. I conduct research in Artificial Intelligence that has been recognized by the scientific community and the popular media. For example, I have presented at Artificial Intelligence & Statistics, an honor for only 6% of the submissions of the conference (out of 400+ papers). I have also been nominated for best paper awards in the International Educational Data Mining and the Special Interest Group of Dialogue Systems conferences. I am the happy first-prize winner of a Kaggle competition against 350+ international teams predicting sudden traffic changes .
