Egor first learned mathematics in the Russian tradition, then continued his studies with an MSc at ETH Zurich and a PhD at the University of Maryland. Egor has been doing data science since the late 1990s, in nonprofits, startups (including his own) and investment banks, in the US, Ghana, UK, and Switzerland. Following this decade’s explosion in AI techniques, Egor was Head of AI at Mosaic Smart Data Ltd for three years, and now is bringing the power of AI to bear at Wise, across a variety of domains. Open-source projects initiated and guided by Egor include wise-pizza, causaltune, and neural-lifetimes, with more on the way.
