Davide Zilli is Director of Client Services at Mind Foundry, an Oxford University Machine Learning spin-out. After obtaining a BEng Hons in Software Engineering from the University of Southampton, he joined the Institute for Complex Systems Simulation where he obtained a PhD for his research on bioacoustics and machine learning for citizen science. While at the Institute, he was visiting scholar at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, working on pollution sensing, and research intern at Microsoft Research, Cambridge, UK, investigating acoustic detection of animal species.
Upon completion of his doctorate, he joined the Machine Learning Research Group at Oxford University, working on the acoustic detection of malarial mosquitoes. When Mind Foundry was spun out of the University, he joined in the position of Machine Learning Research Scientist, focussing primarily on time series analysis. He now works with clients to drive the highest business impact from the Machine Learning adoption journey.
