Hey, I'm Kazi.

I’m a student at Carnegie Mellon University studying Statistics and Machine Learning. I design and build software that makes machine learning more accessible and understandable.

Currently, I’m a Full Stack Engineer at NOVID, building the next generation of tools to fight and prevent pandemics. I’m also a member of the Data Interaction Group conducting research on explainable machine learning.

Previously, I was an intern at Use All Five and IBM.
