I’m a Senior Data Scientist in the Personalization team at Walmart Global Tech. I graduated with a PhD in Computational Math from Stanford University, where I was advised by Lei Xing from Stanford School of Medicine. My thesis focused on Data Representations and Data Quality in the context of Machine Learning and Healthcare. Here is the dedication and acknowledgements section of my thesis.

I obtained a Master’s in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Purdue University, where I was advised by David Gleich from the Department of Computer Science. My research at that time focused on best rank-1 approximations in the 1-norm. Before Purdue, I obtained a Bachelor’s in Electronics and Communication from BMS College of Engineering, Bangalore.

In the past I was mentored by the British mathematician Tim Poston and the computer scientist Ahmed Sameh.

Personal: My brother Siddarth Vasudevan is a scientist working at the interface of physics and chemistry after completing his PhD in Materials Science from ETH Zurich.
