About Me

I’m currently working as a Data Officer in a complex international manufacturing environment. My primary objective is to enable and contribute to data-driven ways of business value creation by utilizing state-of-the-art industrial IoT systems, analytics, visualization, data management, and cloud computing.

I’m equally comfortable at communicating at the CxO level, as well as at the technical level with software engineers and data scientists.

As an information technology professional, data architect, project lead, and team lead with two decades of experience, I worked in various domains & international projects, ranging from ERP systems, to e-learning, computer assisted language teaching, space industry, medical informatics, original big object storage technology development, telecom systems, and media industry.

With respect to technology, my recent work utilized Amazon Web Services & Microsoft Azure, distributed NoSQL solutions such as Cassandra, petabyte-scale S3-compatible object storage systems such as  HGST Active Archive, Big Data technologies such as Hadoop, and Natural Language Processing & Semantic Web data pipelines in Spark.

My formal background is in mathematics, engineering, and cognitive science.
