      R&D Quantitative Analyst

      Dearborn, MI

    I joined the Ford team in April 2017.  I am currently an Analytics Scientist in the Research and Development Department of the newly created skill team Global Data Insight and Analytics (GDIA). My background is in engineering.  I think most people in GDIA come from diverse backgrounds, ranging from physics to engineering, to economics, to social sciences, to computer science, etc.  It is a diverse working group, but one advantage I had was that, throughout my career, I have worked extensively with computer simulations. One thing we started was incorporating machine-learning techniques into some of our projects. As I learned more about the field, I said, "Whoa – wouldn’t it be great if I could do machine learning full time in a concerted way and actually apply it to a tangible problem?"
