Thinkful mentor

Kris Pickrell


Kris is a principal data scientist working in the wedding and baby space. He's been doing statistical modeling in several domains for 18 years and holds degrees from Texas Lutheran University and Texas State University. He produces open source software and libraries that do things like automated model building because he thinks data scientists shouldn't have to fiddle with hyper-parameters. He's expert in C++ and Python and when he's not doing technical stuff he loves playing chess.
