Luis Capelo



I am a Harvard-trained analyst and programmer that specializes in the design and development of Data Science products. I am based in the great New York City, USA.

I am the head of the Data Products Team at Forbes, where we both investigate new techniques for optimizing article performance and create clever bots that help us distribute our content. Previously, I led a team of world-class scientist at the Flowminder Foundation where we developed predictive models for assisting the humanitarian community. And prior to that I worked for the United Nations as part of the Humanitarian Data Exchange team (founders of the Center for Humanitarian Data).

I am a native from Havana, Cuba. And the founder and owner of a small consultancy firm dedicated to supporting the nascent Cuban private sector.
