Allen Leis

Allen Leis is an experienced data engineer and sometimes data scientist located in Washington D.C.. While his former life entailed developing web systems for the U.S. Navy, U.S. Senate, and nonprofit organizations - he is currently devoted to the technological “wild west” of data analytics and machine learning. Allen is presently working as a consultant and software engineer for a variety of data science startups in order to bootstrap their data ingestion, wrangling, and machine learning efforts. When not heroically solving big data engineering and distributed computing problems, he can usually be found teaching for Georgetown University’s Data Science certificate program or indulging in his hobby of computer science graduate courses at the University of Maryland.
