Prateek is a DPhil student at the University of Oxford under the supervision of Prof. M. Pawan Kumar. His thesis is focused on adapting machine learning methods for NP-Hard discrete optimisation problems.

Prior to starting his PhD, he worked as a data scientist for American Express and Genesis Media (Online Video Advertising Startup). At GenesisMedia, he worked on ad-format selection algorithm and user lifetime value (patent pending). He enjoyed working at GenesisMedia as he contributed his data-centric approach for decisions not only to build KPI-improving algorithms but also to other divisions of the startup.
