Data driven insights & insight driven products

I'm a technically competent full-stack data scientist & researcher with experience in leading, designing, implementing, and evaluating data science and big data systems end-to-end on-premises as well as on the cloud. I’m experienced in implementing search systems (information retrieval), recommender systems, mathematical/statistical models, and deep machine learning models. I’m comfortable in writing programs in many different programming languages, including Python, R, JavaScript, and Java, and implementing micro-service APIs. I’m familiar with software versioning, agile development practices, continuous delivery using modern DevOps techniques, and software testing techniques. I’ve managed small data science and software development teams. I focus on producing high-quality results to meet the diverse needs of the enterprise today.
