About me

  • I am an Engineer turned researcher. My experience is one-of-a-kind in the business world or academia. I integrate the most advantageous aspects of both worlds. I combine a full-stack leadership skillset of Product Management, Scientific computing with ML and data engineering.
  • I began my career as a programmer using C# and SybaseIQ (the original Columnar DB). I subsequently worked as a Technology Lead and then as a Technical Product Manager where I sucessfully led engagements upto worth $50 million.
  • Over the past five years, I have worked as an AI Researcher specializing in dealing with enormous datasets (++petabytes) on and off the cloud and in Deep Learning and ML applied to Finance and algorithmic trading. In Quantitative Finance and Mathematical Optimization, I have authored numerous research papers in reputable SCIE journals and have been awarded two German patents.
  • Presently I am working as a Principal Product Specialist - Data Science & Research Practices at MultiCloud4U Technologies (an official technology partner of Alibaba Cloud).I am also MVP - Artificial Intelligence for Alibaba Cloud and leading their tech community initiatives.
  • Over the past 17 years, I have gained strong domain experience in below areas:
    • Credit cards life cycle, Mutual Funds
    • Financial Risk Management and Quantitative Modelling
    • Online retail and Digital Business Transformation
    • Cloud computing and Cloud ML
  • My full stack experience:
    • Product Management, Product Strategy, Product Roadmap and Delivery.
    • Strong Data Engineering experience especially with huge datasets
    • Strong research and publication experience in ML Deep Learning, Reinforcement Learning, mathematical optimization methods, metaheuristic algorithms, econometric methods and Financial Mathematics
  • My present interest: Applying AI in Finance using these Libraries :Scientific computing Libraries
