  • Senior Machine Learning Engineer

    2020 - 2020
    Liberty Defense
    • Designed and showcased a deep convolutional neural network for the prediction of threats.
    • Involved state-of-the-art image segmentation and detection such as Mask-RCNN for the segmentation of threats (e.g., in cases hiding guns or having guns with them).
    • Achieved remarkable accuracy of (95%) in detecting cases carrying guns. Used the TensorFlow library for implementation. Trained on CUDA GPUs.
    Technologies: Deep Learning, TensorFlow, Keras, Python
  • Senior Software Engineer

    2018 - 2019
    Home Depot
    • Designed and implemented deep models for search and personalization. The task was to rank items returned by a search engine for different search phrases with respect to their relevance and satisfaction of users.
    • Trained NLP models implemented with TensorFlow and trained on GPU. Used recurrent neural nets along with siamese networks. Integrated multiple modalities such as user behavior.
    • Required preprocessing scripts written in the Spark framework to generate and preprocess large datasets.
    Technologies: Deep Learning, TensorFlow, Python
  • Software Engineer Intern

    2018 - 2018
    Verizon Connect
    • Developed an app using advanced recommender systems for recommending the best matching shopping places for drivers. Used and sorted through a large amount of data accumulated in data clusters.
    • Utilized driver behaviors as well as their personalities and demographics to train an integrated deep recommender system. The data was accumulated from a large number of vehicles consuming the product (dongle).
    • Integrated two types of recommender systems; the content-based filtering methods, and the collaborative filtering method. Content-based modeled individual personal information, while the collaborative modeled driving behaviors and habits.
    • Used TensorFlow and Python to achieve the task using both collaborative and content-based filtering approaches. Trained end-to-end.
    • Achieved significant performance in predicting the preference of drivers for their shopping center of interest.
    Technologies: Deep Learning, TensorFlow, Python
  • Data Analyst Intern

    2015 - 2015
    UCB Pharma
    • Developed a deep learning pipeline based on auto-encoders to predict Parkinson's disease from claims data. The goal was to predict whether the person has Parkinson's based on past visits at different doctors.
    • Utilized the H2O library in R to implement a deep network from features describing the patient's past medications and diagnosed codes. Achieved an impressive prediction performance of about 90%.
    • Identified cases in the early stages of the disease (to receive a more successful treatment), by using the trained model to find trial cases sooner.
    Technologies: Deep Learning, R


  • Prediction of Threats from Radar Generated Images

    Developed a deep convolutional neural network for the prediction of threats (i.e., persons carrying guns), in real-time. This project was the analytics part of a platform developed by the company I had collaborated with. The overall platform included using a multi-static radar system that generated 3D volumetric images and a Kinect camera to find the distance to the camera. The radar phased data were then preprocessed and combined with the Kinect image to generate a 3D volume. We used state-of-the-art deep image segmentation and detection to uncover threats. This project involved the use of popular deep architectures such as R-CNN, Fast/er R-CNN, and Mask RCNN.
