I currently work as a Machine Learning Researcher for a professional sports team in the US. Previously, I worked at the IMF’s Risk Unit in Washington D.C, where I helped build crisis prediction models for risk management and contingency planning. I am interested in topics relating to organizational success and decision making in the sports business.
I am a graduate of the American University of Beirut and hold a Master’s of Arts in Applied Economics from Georgetown University. Prior to specializing in economics, I was a national basketball player for Team Lebanon U18. Here are my stats from FIBA Asia 2010.

Here is the full story in a presentation I gave a few months after.
