Eugene Yan

Hi, I'm Eugene Yan. I work at the intersection of consumer data & tech to build machine learning systems to help customers. I also write about effective data science, learning, and career.

I'm currently an Applied Scientist at Amazon helping users read more, and get more out of reading.

Previously, I led the data science team at Lazada (acquired by Alibaba in 2016), working on e-commerce ML systems (e.g., ranking, automation, fraud detection).

Other domains I’ve worked in include healthcare (early disease detection, price prediction) and people ops (demand forecasting, job recommendations).

I enjoy meeting people with similar interests. Reach out or schedule some time! Always interested to learn what others are doing and how I can help.
