Work Experience

Data Scientist

2021 - PRESENT
Freelance
  • Designed a deep learning architecture for fully-automatic bio-assay toxicity prediction based on Mol2vec (Jaeger et al., 2018) preprocessing and achieved the best single-model test performance on the Tox21 sub-dataset.
  • Created a trading analytics pipeline for automatic gathering, sorting, and combining various trading algorithms with Python.
  • Implemented and deployed an artistic style transfer network for the stylization of everyday images.
  • Designed and implemented a Python scheduled data delivery script for automatic data gathering and snapshotting.
  • Created an AI-based VR application for predicting user stress levels based on the pupil diameter for Pico Neo 2.
Technologies: Python, Jupyter Notebook, TensorFlow, Scikit-learn

Mid-senior Data Scientist

2020 - 2021
ACT - Analysis and Consulting Team
  • Created a collaborative filtering solution for automatic recommendations based on customer transaction data of a local pharmaceutical company.
  • Developed a data pipeline for cleaning, aggregation, and automatic reporting for a hospital transactional database.
  • Oversaw communications with the data engineering team and delivered reports based on the data insights.
Technologies: Python, Pandas, SQL, Scikit-learn, XGBoost

Junior Data Scientist

2018 - 2020
Orient Logic
  • Developed a transaction fraud detection system for a local bank with a modified IsoForest-based anomaly detection algorithm, using Scikit-learn.
  • Built an experimental Georgian-native banking assistant chatbot using IBM Watson and Flask. Flask server used NLP to normalize Georgian input using a Google API prior to sending requests to IBM Watson.
  • Worked on and presented promising AI technologies and libraries to the leading managers in order to boost Orient Logic's business analytics capabilities.
Technologies: Python, KNIME, Matplotlib, Presentations, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Excel, TensorFlow, Scikit-learn

Attentional Style Transfer

Implemented a style transfer paper (Dae Park and Kwang Hee Lee, 2019) using PyTorch, TensorFlow, and TensorFlow.js into a fully serverless web application that can be viewed as a GitHub Pages app. This challenging transition between PyTorch, ONNX, and TensorFlow.js gave me a unique understanding of inter-framework relationships and ML model deployment considerations.

Tox21 Challenge

https://tripod.nih.gov/tox21/challenge/
The Tox21 challenges data scientists around the world to predict chemical interactions with biological pathways. I developed a statistical model—ensemble (RF, GBM, and DT) and tuned the model via Bayesian optimization to address a specific sub-task in this challenge. With 50+ teams competing to build the best predictor, my model was second due to my hand-crafted innovative feature engineering techniques.

Automatic Trading Portfolio Construtor

A Python-based app for gathering the unique trading algorithms in a group for automatic portfolio creation. For over a month, I collaborated with a non-technical client to implement, experiment with, and release an end-to-end Python Pandas pipeline to process large streams of trading data into a diverse trading portfolio.
