David Kaleko
Senior Applied Scientist, Ph.D.


I'm currently a Senior Applied Scientist for AWS in the Generative AI Innovation Center.

I'm passionate about applying the research science and engineering skills I've developed to help people and to make a concrete positive impact on the world, for example by building machine learning models that transcribe 911 calls in real time.

I have a Ph.D. in particle physics from Columbia University, and my research experiment was called MicroBooNE.

Other interests of mine include learning new things, woodworking, playing chess, and life away from a computer screen.

If you're a chess player, here's my all time favorite puzzle. White to play and win!
