My name is Justin Austin, and I am a machine learning engineer in the D.C. Metro Area.

I recently graduated from the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. My majors were Computer Science and Philosophy.

I was raised in the small town of Beattyville in southeastern Kentucky.

I currently work for Koto, a division of S&P Global. Before Koto, I was a teaching assistant in CIS 262, a course on the theory of computation. Prior to becoming a TA, I was a web developer/research assistant for the Zicklin Center for Business Ethics Research and a web developer for Penn’s Philosophy, Politics, and Economics Department. I also had the pleasure of interning as a Java developer with CardConnect. A number of years ago, I built a website for Bear Track Lake Adventures, my parents’ cabin rental business.

I enjoy reading, writing, listening to music, and learning about the world. My interests include artificial intelligence, ethics, politics, public policy, and the intersections between them.

If you have any questions/comments/want to get in contact, I can be reached at justin@justincaustin.com.
