  Hi, I am Nikolas, a computer science graduate at Pomona College, and I enjoy learning about innovative applications of machine learning. My first industry exposure to machine learning was when I interned in Yelp's Search team last summer. Right now, I work as a machine learning software engineer at a healthcare startup. My team builds models that predict worst case scenarios for patients at risk of medical emergencies. I am interested in investigating the social implications of artificial Intelligence and machine learning. By acknowledging potentially harmful aspects of these emerging technologies, we will be in a better position to use them ethically. In my free time, I enjoy running, reading books, debating with friends, journaling, drinking boba, and binging series on Netflix. I also like studying and practicing Chinese.
