Finding the knowledge needle in the big data haystack

I am a scientist and a technologist with a successful track record in both academic research and product commercialization. I come from a statistical signal processing and data analysis background, which I developed into machine learning and data science expertise. I' ve applied my knowledge to diverse fields: maritime domain awareness, event prediction, anomaly detection, fraud prevention, consumer behavior segmentation, scientific marketing, digital telecommunications, underwater acoustic signal processing, digital music identification, text and language processing.

I have worked in both large, structured organizations and small, fluid startups, including my own AI consulting and advising outfit. I lead technical teams and communicate with the business units and subject matter experts of organizations at the appropriate level of granularity. At the same time, I remain solidly technical and contribute product specifications, system designs, visualizations, exploratory data analyses, prototypes, insights. I most enjoy connecting concepts from machine learning, AI and tools from data science to the semantics, constraints, and requirements of specific problems to deliver solutions that are practical, impactful, and backed by best practices.

My current interests are in machine learning, data mining, analytics at big data scale; visualizing and communicating results; leading multi-disciplinary, agile data science teams.
