Data representation, simulation, collection, curation, and processing describe my day to day activities. Data modeling with conventional statistical technics or modern ML algorithms with customized architectures have become my expertise.
I take pride in creating informative, artistic, and inviting data visualizations. I believe data visualization is the key to understand, communicate, solve, and debug any complex problem. Not to mention it is often the face of a project when it comes to marketing.
I enjoy working on new and exciting projects, solving technical challenges and learning along the way. I'm seasoned working independently or in a large team. I find it rewarding to collaborate with team members and teams outside the company.
