Ashwin Narayan

Principal Data Scientist


At MissionWired, I specialize in developing rigorous, cutting-edge machine learning models that drive our clients’ digital campaigns. I help leverage the power of clients’ data to propel unprecedented fundraising growth.

I care deeply about expanding the reach of progressive organizations beyond their usual donor base by attempting to solve a classic problem in machine learning: that past biases and blindspots are learned and passed on. Having completed a PhD in applied math, I’m finding it so rewarding to draw connections between my dissertation on understanding patterns in highly-dimensional data and my work in the progressive data space. I am always searching for ways to ensure that data science is used in pursuit of equity.

Outside of work, I am certified as a Wilderness First Responder – luckily, I haven’t had to use those skills in the wild yet!
