Dr. Kirk Borne is the Principal Data Scientist, an Executive Advisor, and the first Data Science Fellow at Booz Allen. Dr. Borne is a sought-after global speaker and trainer on topics ranging from data mining, data management, big data analytics, data science, machine learning, artificial intelligence, internet of things, data-driven decision-making, modeling & simulation of dynamic systems to emerging technologies, future of work, education, and science.

He also provides leadership and mentoring to multi-disciplinary teams of scientists, modelers, and data scientists; and he consults with numerous external organizations, industries, agencies, and partners in the use of large data repositories and machine learning for discovery, decision support, and innovation. In addition to being a top big data influencer, he was professor of astrophysics and computational science at George Mason University (GMU) for 12 years.
