"The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do." - Rob Siltanen
I’m a sophomore undergraduate at Western University looking to pursue a degree in Software Engineering and Business. I’m an avid public speaker and have a strong passion for machine learning techniques, (quantitative) finance, and entrepreneurship.
I'm currently at Google building machine learning models on the Ads team as a Software Engineering Intern. I'm also involved in building algorithmic trading solutions for Mustang Capital, using reinforcement learning for acoustic metamaterial research, and performing due diligence & approving investments for a Canadian Venture Capital firm. In the past, I've pitched my ML startup to thousands at TechCrunch Disrupt SF, placing Top 10 Worldwide.
In my free time I enjoy: playing & watching soccer, following developments in space travel, reading papers on war history, taking to the air in a Cessna 172, urban exploration, and driving performance vehicles.
