Ilia Azizi is a PhD candidate at HEC Lausanne, interested in applied Machine Learning, interpretability, and modeling multi-modal data (structured and unstructured data). With a multicultural background and highly dynamic education, he aims to break through the world of data analytics and rigorously apply data in answering challenging business questions.

Aside from having a passion for data, he analyzes high-tech firms to foresee those that can make the future happen sooner. His interests outside of work fall on traveling, playing the piano, and hiking through the Swiss mountains.
