Marc Kjerland, PhD

About Me

I am currently a senior data scientist and quantitative developer on contract at Bank of America.

Previously I worked in the insurance analytics division at Verisk Analytics.

My background is in computational science specializing in mathematical modeling, high-performance computing, geophysical applications, and machine learning. In 2017 I worked with researchers at the Institute for Environmental Science and Policy of the University of Illinois at Chicago developing novel performance metrics for urban institutions.

From 2015-2017 I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Maritime/Coastal Disaster Section of the Disaster Prevention Research Institute at Kyoto University, developing models to simulate coastal flooding caused by typhoons using adaptive mesh refinement.

Here is my resume (updated February 2019). Please contact me if you'd like a detailed CV.
