Meet four new Knerds!

Hillary Green-Lerman, originally from Irvine, California, joins Knewton as a data scientist on the Research and Development team. She attended UC Berkeley and worked as a scientific associate at D.E. Shaw Research before coming to Knewton. Her hobbies include running, sewing, quilting, and cooking. Her favorite TV show is Fringe.

Steven Levitt is a software engineer on the Analytics team. Originally from Brooklyn, he previously worked at JPMorgan Chase & Co., running high performance computing clusters as a service for quantitative research applications. If he could witness any event in history, it would be the Gettysburg Address. His favorite TV show is The Walking Dead.

A London native, Suzette Richards joins Knewton as the manager of the Client Services team. She is a graduate of Westminster University and previously worked training and advising clients on proprietary software in the Financial Markets. Her favorite month of the year is June, and she enjoys sailing, knitting, cooking, and travelling.

Torlisa Jeffrey, from Memphis, Tennessee, is new to the Implementations team. She attended Wellesley University and earned her MBA from Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business. Her favorite fast food chain is Chick-Fil-A, and if she could witness any event in history, it would be Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech.
