Pete SkomorochI'm an entrepreneur, data scientist, and product manager based in San Francisco. My main focus is building intelligent systems to automate manual processes and help people make better decisions. I specialize in solving difficult algorithmic challenges, leading cross-functional teams, and developing engaging product features powered by data and machine learning.

Most recently, I applied my skills to the consumer internet space at LinkedIn, the world's largest professional network, where I was an early member of the data science team. As Principal Data Scientist, I led a data product team focused on reputation, search, and shipping data driven products. I was also the creator of Skills & Endorsements, one of the fastest growing new products in LinkedIn's history.

Before joining LinkedIn, I was Director of Analytics at Juice Analytics and a Senior Research Engineer at AOL Search. In a previous life, I developed price optimization models for Fortune 500 retailers, studied machine learning at MIT, and worked on Biodefense projects for DARPA and The Department of Defense. I have a B.S. in Mathematics and Physics from Brandeis University and research experience in Biology and Neuroscience.
