  • Lead Machine Learning Engineer

    2013 - PRESENT
    StreamEdge Analytics, LLC.
    • Responsible for the design and implementation of specific components of the Xfinity Voice Assistant Platform that is used by millions of customers every day. Lead engineer on Comcast Labs Applied AI research and engineering team that owns the full stack and operationalization of voice product offerings, as well as advanced analytics and the machine learning pipeline work. Used advanced machine learning and Cloud technologies to process the billions of natural language queries received every year, and to make a user’s input actionable. (http://dclabs.comcast.com).
    • Supported the $1.2 billion contract with Centers for Medicare Services and worked as the lead machine learning engineer on the project. I focused on predictive modeling, machine learning, and data mining on a large healthcare dataset. SERCO-NA (https://www.serco-na.com).
    • Developed predictive models to improve the effectiveness of child support collection activities and monitoring of the health and safety of children in foster care. I oversaw the project as the lead machine learning engineer. Information Builders (ibi.com).
    • Developed multi-terabyte Automated Vehicle Location data sets consisting of the operational details of public transportation systems for major metropolitan transit systems as the lead big data analytics engineer. I applied advanced data mining, statistical inference, and machine learning techniques to identify unsafe operational practices in public transportation systems.
    • Supported the special activities for the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Office of Secretary of Defense, and Defense Manpower Data Center. I engineered and managed mission-critical manpower analytics and logistics systems.
    • Collaborated as the teaching and technical assistant to the lead instructors for the Predictive Analytics for Healthcare workshop of the largest conference on Predictive Analytics.

  • Active Learning Research: Department of Computer Sciences at George Mason University (Development)

    Active learning is a special case of machine learning in which a learning algorithm is able to interactively query the user (or some other information source) to obtain the desired outputs at new data points. In statistics literature, it is sometimes also called optimal experimental design. [Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Active_learning_(machine_learning)]

  • Renewable Energy Market Trading Optimization (Development)

    Designed and developed Greensmith Energy's first real-time energy market trading process that makes use of advanced optimization models. Successful 30-day operational test by the world's largest producer of electricity, Électricité de France (EDF: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Électricité_de_France) in a CAISO five-minute real-time energy market simulator.
