About Us

Dr. Charles Parker, PhD

Principal AI Scientist

Area of focus (or passion)

Applied machine learning

Favorite life-hack or EF-building strategy

Bash scripting! Scripting common tasks is both automation and documentation.

Favorite board game, puzzle, or EF-taxing pastime

Practicing piano. In a way, it’s relaxing like knitting, but you have to think really hard about every stitch until muscle-memory kicks in and makes things magically easy.

Career leading up to Comigo in one sentence

I've tried to make machine learning work for people the way it should.

What’s always in your travel bag?

Multi-region power adapter (in a previous life I traveled overseas a lot).

What are your 5 guiding values?

Rationality, compassion, knowledge, mindfulness, gratitude

What’s always with you at your desk?

External keyboard with clicky MX blue switches. It’s hard to describe why the clicks make me so happy, but they do.

Favorite food

Black currants. They're not available in most supermarkets but I grow them in my yard and use them to make jam, liquor, and as toppings for custard desserts.

Favorite travel destination?

Maui. I've only been once but it was breathtaking.

Favorite footwear

Brooks Beast Adrenaline running shoes
