Michail Alifierakis

RESEARCHER AND DATA SCIENTIST

SUMMARY

I am currently a Software Engineer at Bloomberg working on NLP solutions to data ingestion. Before that I was a Ph.D. candidate in Chemical Engineering at Princeton University where I developed computational models that describe the aggregation behavior of graphene and the electrical and mechanical properties of graphene-filled elastomers as a function of different processing parameters.
