Data Scientist, Machine Learning Engineer, Haphazard Adventurer, and Hopeful Space Explorer.

Data Scientist @ Microsoft


My passion is building innovations for the world by leveraging the predictive power of data. I love building predictive Machine Learning models, efficient and optimized ML platforms, and being responsible for implementing the "AI" in AI-powered technology. I'm interested in any area where I can go in-depth and develop tailored solutions to the world's most difficult problems. For humanity to advance and solve the greatest challenges we can imagine, we need to give some of the cognitive load to our machines.
