Founder and CEO of Humanyze (previously Sociometric Solutions), big (sensor) data fanatic, PhD from MIT Media Lab in Human Dynamics, previously a senior researcher @ HBS
In my research at MIT and now in my start up, we've collected the largest database on face-to-face interaction in the world. We're using insights from our data to drive major organizational change at some of the largest and most successful companies in the world.
In the vast datasets I've collected on digital communication, sensor data, and yes even the occasional survey, I've been able to identify the most effective way to structure social systems in a variety of circumstances.
I literally wrote the book on people analytics - using data to understand how people actually work and using it to transform companies. My company is the world leader in people analytics, using a combination of wearable sensors and digital data traces to gain a truly holistic view of how people work. I've worked with industry leading companies such as Bank of America, Deloitte, and the Sacramento Kings (seriously) to bring people analytics into their organizations.
