Mark Landry

Competition Data Scientist & Product Manager, H2O.ai
Mark Landry is a competition data scientist and product manager at H2O. He enjoys testing ideas in Kaggle competitions, where he is ranked in the top 100 in the world (top 0.03%) and well-trained in getting quick solutions to iterate over. Most at home in SQL, he found H2O through hacking in R. Interests are multi-model architectures and helping the world make fewer models that perform worse than the mean.
