Aravind Moorthy

Dr. Aravind Moorthy comes to data science with a background in both computer science (BA, Computer Science, Rice University) and economics (PhD, Economics, UCLA). Before arriving at Valve, where he studies video games and gamers using data from Steam, Dr. Moorthy used data science to study international development programs. Why, when he was your age, he used to trek 10 miles through the Sahara Desert to copy database records by hand in a dusty storeroom using a dull pencil (true story!). He is also a meditation teacher in the Seattle area.
