In University, Yale turned a popular nightclub into a research lab and quantified the nights to improve parties and bottom lines. His work has been featured in textbooks worldwide as well as in 100+ media publications. His research caught the attention of Freakonomics authors Levitt and Dubner, who hired him to produce insights about the hidden side of everything.

In his spare time, Yale continues to hack away. His latest passion project involves the build-out of a custom communication system for his dog, Elly. By combining AI with state-of-the-art sound and voice-recognition equipment, Elly will be able to converse with people, ask for food, and offer opinions.
