William Benton
Team Lead Data Science

William Benton leads a team of data scientists and engineers at Red Hat where he has focused on enabling machine learning workflows and data processing pipelines in cloud-native environments. After stints in academia doing HPC and static bytecode analysis, he vowed never to touch anything looking like scientific code or the JVM again; in a pleasant professional irony, he’s liking both much better this time around. Will lives in the midwestern United States with his wife and three children and spends some of his spare time chasing light on bicycles or capturing it with cameras.
