Pardis Noorzad

I am Head of Data Science at Carbon Health, a technology-enabled healthcare provider designed to make world-class primary and urgent care accessible to all. My team's mission is to improve health outcomes and increase operational efficiency. We maintain an open clinical data repository for research purposes.

I led Connect Data Science at Twitter—covering Search, Trends, Explore, Events, Moments, Topics, and Notifications. I reestablished the Product Data Science function at the company, ushering its expansion for the first time in four years. At Paytm Labs, I designed and built a fully automated fraud detection engine for Paytm—the P2P payments and marketplace app serving India. As an early employee at Rubikloud, I proposed and built a promotions allocation system for retailers. This has since become the company's flagship product.

I studied random graph models of online social networks at Ryerson University. At Amirkabir University, I published on music genre recognition and sparse linear classifiers. I hold a degree in Software Engineering from the University of Tehran, where I served as ECE Representative for three years. I also served on the Ryerson Senate for a year.

In June 2020, I sat down with Grant Ingersoll for a podcast episode. Thanks to Grant, the episode has turned into a good review of my work history.
