Raymond Chan
Chapter Lead, DataKind SG

Raymond Chan is the principal data scientist at the Tao of Shop, where he champions data science and analytics techniques. As part of a startup applying Agile methodology, he works with a number of software engineers to fully integrate his algorithms into productions systems with little hierarchical bureaucracy. His primary expertise is in building mathematical models for decision making during movement, which he developed as a postdoc at Baylor College of Medicine and a PhD student at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences in Leipzig, Germany. When not data sciencing at his day job, Raymond is a core lead with DataKind SG, donating his time to NGOs that need data science or analytics support, such as the Committee for UN Women, Phandeeyar—the Myanmar tech hub, and HOME (Humanitarian Organization for Migration Economics), based in Singapore. Raymond holds a PhD in Informatics from the University of Leipzig.
