Adam Hunt is the CTO and Chief Data Scientist at RiskIQ. As Chief Data Scientist, Adam leads the data science, data engineering, and research teams at RiskIQ. Adam pioneers research automating the detection of adversarial attacks across disparate digital channels, including email, web, mobile, social media. Adam also has received patents for identifying new external threats using machine learning.
Adam received his Ph.D. in experimental particle physics from Princeton University. As an award-winning member of the CMS collaboration at the Large Hadron Collider, he was an integral part of developing the online and offline analysis systems that lead to the discovery of the Higgs Boson.
In this episode, we discuss starting in particle physics, data science, communication skills, process automation, managing attack surface areas, and so much more.
