I am an accomplished Statistics and Machine Learning Researcher and a Data Scientist with 15+ years of research and applied work at top Universities, renowned private Research Corporations, and successful Startups.
I was a machine learning researcher at leading research labs both in Industry as well as in Academia, worked as a statistician with world’s top statisticians, and was a mathematician at top math departments. These institutions produced Nobel Prize winners in Economics and Physics, Fields Medalists in Mathematics, and Turing Prize winners in Computer Science.
I directly managed my research group on Machine Learning at a Max Planck Institute, and a Business Intelligence R&D department in one of the most successful European Startups.
In the areas of Machine Learning, Statistics, Applied Mathematics and Data Analysis, I managed, advised, supervised and consulted researchers, engineers, and software developers, from 12 departments of 10 National Research Institutes, research Universities, and commercial companies, in 6 countries.
For teams of data scientists or researchers, I find work directions with the highest impact, train colleagues so that they up their knowledge to the state-of-the-art in the field, organize productive collaborations and, as a result, elevate the team’s work to the next level of efficiency.
I am an expert in communicating ideas from machine learning, statistics and mathematics, as well as in presenting the data analysis results to technical and non-technical audiences, and delivered more than 50 invited talks at conferences, academic institutions and commercial companies from 13 countries.
I lectured on Machine Learning, Statistics, and Applied Mathematics at top Universities in 3 countries, to national team level students, and 2 of my former students already became Professors.
On top of that, I published over 20 full-length articles in top-ranked international journals and conferences in statistics, mathematics and machine learning, including single-author publications.
As a hands-on researcher, I enjoy inventing, developing and applying novel statistical and machine learning methods that are optimal for specific application areas. My algorithms are always validated and supported by theory. I developed a number of novel data analysis approaches throughout my career, and won multiple Awards, Fellowships and research Grants.
