Burke O’Brien

I’m a data scientist interested in applying rigorous machine learning methods to tell important and compelling narratives. I’m currently interning with the Analytics Innovation team at Altman Solon, a leading strategy consulting firm, where I support their analytics and machine learning capabilities.

With my background in academia and public policy research, I offer a unique perspective and range of experiences applying statistical and machine learning methods to real-life problems.

Outside of work, I enjoy crosswords, playing games with friends, and seeing the city from my bike. Ask me about Boston sports teams, my love of chess, or why I will never again operate a coffee-shop.
