Joshua Seth Gordon
My name is Joshua Gordon, I am a PhD Candidate in the UCLA Department of Statistics. I completed my M.S. in Statistics at UCLA in 2013 and after a stint in the industry as a Data Scientist I advanced to PhD candidacy in 2015. I've worked at Pacific Life Insurance Company as a Data Scientist and Seagate as a Data Engineer. At UCLA my research focuses on Earthquake modeling using point processes. I've also focused on Model Evaluation and Non Parametric Hawkes Processes.
Prior to attending UCLA I attended Willamette University in Salem, Oregon and participated in the Americorps VISTA program from 2010 - 2011. I helped organize financial literacy programs in K-12 schools and coordinated volunteers for Financial Beginnings , a local 501 (c) 3 non-profit.
Besides my job and research I enjoy working on projects emphasizing web and mobile development. A list of my active and retired projects is below.
