Expert in Automated Property Valuation, Statistical Inference, Artificial Intelligence, Theoretical Physics
He conducted applied research in applied Artificial Intelligence at Carnegie-Mellon from 1984 - 1990. Followed the curriculum of computer science and artificial intelligence. Attended many AI conferences. Subsequent projects at USC and Countrywide also involved AI.
He was responsible for the analysis and modeling of consumer responses for Countrywide's direct marketing of sub-prime mortgages.
This was the field of his Ph.D. thesis in theoretical physics. He also held post-docs at SUNY at Stony Brook and Carnegie-Mellon, in this field.
The automated property valuation system that he has developed uses the sales comparison approach as one of it's main methods of valuation.
2008 Contributed to the development of an Aculis proposal for Google. Advised on statistical inference.1995 Initial prototype of Countrywides property evaluation system.1995 Research and design for a risk analysis tool for Catastrophe Insurance Underwriting
