The most amazing...

...thing I've designed and implemented was an AI-driven app in S4HANA Procurement suite to propose materials for contract negotiation based on historical spending.


  • Senior Data Scientist

    2019 - PRESENT
    • Developed AI-driven filters to help marketers to extend their audience using historical and real-time data of campaigns' success and failure. Results are a lift of up 25% on the audience and a boost of about 7% on the success rate.
    • Led the development of a machine learning solution to optimize the right time to send marketing emails in order to increase the open rate. Current A/B testing results show a double open rate.
    • Led AI projects for the conversation marketing platform. From text representation models to language models and natural language understanding, NLP, and computer vision.

  • Data Scientist

    2017 - 2019
    SAP Labs
    • Developed real-time monitoring of procurement expenses to propose materials for (re)negotiated contracts. Procurement strategic purchasers can be able to reduce the processing time from an average of two months to three days.
    • Developed a machine learning model to assign a risk score to each purchase requisition in order to automatically approve it based on SAP WorkFlow data. Improved on data consistencey and reduced the approval time-interval to seconds.
    • Developed a machine learning solution for invoice-to-account matching to reduce the processing time, improve the consistency and reduce related accounting errors/frauds.
    • Led the development of a compliance tool. Gathered daily news about a given company, curate, and label each news article to the type of risk or opportunity with respect to compliance. Each company would be given a number of scores on a dashboard to inform the compliance specialists about what actions to make or advice to offer to the executives.

  • PhD - Research Assistant

    2013 - 2017
    Brandeis University
    • Investigated synchronization in non-linear oscillators using the Belousov-Zhabontisky reaction as experimental medium. My work consisted of designing experiment, data collection, data analysis, and mathematical modeling.
    • Built a computer vision and mechanical empowered robotic system that could autonomously control all of the experiments. Reactions were generated in droplets and deposited on microlithographic chips.
    • Developed a programmable illumination microscope controller to excite or inhibit droplets using different light colors. This was achieved by using computer vision technology to track droplets and their status in real-time.
    Technologies: Arduino, COMSOL, MATLAB, Python


  • Programmable Illumination Microscope (PIM) Controller

    Python-based app to control a multipoint focused microscope to run a light-sensitive experiment. Given a sample of light-sensitive and optically oscillatory solution compartmentalized on a 2D grid, the goal was to focus light on selected cells in order to excite or inhibit them such that the entire grid would be trained in unison (just like fireflies) or any other given structure.

    A combination of deterministic and machine learning models was implemented in Python to train a model that would learn the temporal oscillations of the chemical solution and determine which cells to inhibit/excite by exposing them to light.

    This was part of my dissertation:

  • Predicting Green Taxi Tips

    The goal of the project was to build a model that can predict the amount of tip a driver of a Green Taxi would receive at the end of his/her ride in NYC.

    Data were obtained from the TLC Trip Record Data. After a deep analysis of features for statistical significance, two random forest models were optimized and combined to predict the tip with an MSE of about 14. Several features were revealed to be very significant such as whether a rider pays with cash or electronically, trip duration, and speed which would give an idea of traffic congestion.

  • Scoring Model for a Toptal Client

    Built a machine learning model to score participants of classes for a Toptal client. A model was built using multivariate linear regression algorithms. Since the client expects to gain a larger audience, the models were regularized to overcome any source of overfitting.
    Tech Stack: Python, MongoDB, Node.js.

  • EDA Tool

    I built an exploratory data analysis (EDA) tool that can be used to visually explore a dataset, run statistics on it, and add comments in real-time which can be saved or printed later. I used Python-Flask in the back end and D3.js on the front end.
