Portrait of Yordan Zaykov

Yordan Zaykov

Senior Software Engineer


I obtained my BSc in Computer Science and MSc in Technology Entrepreneurship from Sofia University, and MPhil in Computer Science from Cambridge University. I’ve been with Microsoft since 2012, working as a developer in the field of machine learning. My main focus have been applications based on the Infer.NET Bayesian inference framework related to email classification, recommendation, player ranking / matchmaking, and knowledge mining.
