About Me

Hello folks!

Welcome to my space on the web. I am a Data Scientist and Analytics leader with over 14 years of experience in supervised and unsupervised machine learning, optimization, and simulation. I received my Ph.D. and M.S. in Industrial Engineering from the University of South Florida. My doctoral research focused on machine learning techniques (reinforcement learning), game theory, and stochastic optimization, and their application to the energy and electricity industry.

Over the last 14 years, I have lived in three different countries, worked in numerous roles in machine learning, simulation, and optimization as a researcher, professor, data scientist, and as a leader building and mentoring large data science teams. I have been fortunate to work in some of the best organizations in the world and with some of the brightest people.

I am the Head of Data Analytics for the Non-Life business of Munich RE for the region of Southeast Asia, Japan, Korea, and India. Previously, I was a Senior Manager for Predictive Analytics / Data Science at Prudential Corporation @ Singapore for two years, where I worked on several exciting new big data analytics projects in the primary insurance domain.

What’s keeping me occupied these days other than analytics?

  • I am fascinated with the convergence of FinTech (InsurTech), IoT, machine learning algorithms, Artificial intelligence and am currently reading all that I can lay my hands on.
  • I am an active blogger trying to breakdown complex concepts in the FinTech space. Check out some of my reviews of the best books on the blockchain and bitcoin and some other articles on the state of FinTech.
