Hi! I’m Daniel Kronovet, a data scientist living in Los Angeles. I work at Colony as a research engineer, contributing to the design and implementation of their future-of-work platform. I led the development of Budget Box, a mechanism for decentralized capital allocation. I was most recently at Foursquare, on the Pilgrim machine learning team, developing algorithms for modeling noisy location data.

I graduated from Columbia, with an M.A. in QMSS, emphasizing the core math and computer science underlying modern machine learning. You can read my (fun) thesis here.

I am interested in the future of technology as it pertains to questions of resource management and social choice, as well as in more abstract questions of representation and measurement. I am also interested in questions of housing and land use, and in particular ways to thoughtfully leverage technology to make better use of existing spaces.

In past lives, I have worked on a kibbutz in Israel, lived in a Buddhist monastery in Thailand, and served on the boards of multiple non-profits. At various points, I have lived in Los Angeles, Berkeley, New York, and Tel Aviv.

I completed my B.A. at UC Berkeley, as a double major in Cognitive Science and Political Economy. While there, I was actively involved in the leadership of the Berkeley Student Cooperative.

I grew up in Santa Monica, where I played on my high school drumline and became an Eagle Scout.

This is my professional blog. I keep a personal blog here, where I make even less sense.
