Chad Scherrer
Senior Data Scientist, Metis


Chad Scherrer is a senior data scientist with Metis, where he trains burgeoning data scientists. In addition to data science education, he has a passion for technology transfer, especially in the area of probabilistic programming. Previously, at the beginning of his work in probabilistic programming, he began leading the development of the Haskell-based language Passage, then joined Galois as technical lead for language evaluation in DARPA’s PPAML program, after which he moved to Seattle and joined Metis. His blog discusses a variety of topics related to data science, with a particular focus on Bayesian modeling.
