Meet The Guest

J Gavin Wu

Director of Data Science at Capital One

I understand data science end to end from automated data collection and processing to report creation and deep dives, to ultimately building and deploying prediction models. I gained that perspective by having made substantial contribution hands-on and having provided leadership in research, product management, software development and marketing teams. I enjoy offering actionable insights and building tools and frameworks that allow people to leverage those insights and collect even more in-depth data. I appreciate thinking out of the box and I don't mind being challenged. I always listen and try my best to be inclusive. Dealing with uncertainty and vagueness is my specialty because that's what data science leaders do. Only work that will make a meaningful impact will get me most excited. That's a good thing because purpose and passion are what drive me forward.
