    Data Scientist

    Synoptica

    Work involves developing artificial intelligence algorithms using state-of-the-art machine learning techniques that help B2B companies automate research and prioritise leads based on company indicators made up of deep web and proprietary data sources. This enables sales and marketing teams to save time and sell faster. Moreover, I contributed to a proposal, that attracted £50,000 grant from Innovate UK to develop an AI based web application using Machine Learning for effectively managing their data.

    Programming: Python 3, Keras, TensorFlow. Machine/Deep learning: SVMs, Kernels, Similarity Metrics, Deep Auto-encoders, Marginalised Stack Denoising Auto-encoders, CNNs.

    Research Fellow (Data Science)

    University of Surrey

    My research focused on modelling biomedical changes over time with a view to forming actionable predictions using electronic medical records. I have been involved in developing machine learning algorithms to classify clinical time series trends and automatically identify acute events, along with algorithms to identify and automatically correct errors in medical records. As the biomedical measurements used are irregularly sampled, I also developed a method of re-sampling time series in order to enable them to be used when training a classifi er. This has involved working closely with a core set of computational and clinical researchers, but also forming ad-hoc working relationships with an extended group of external clinical advisers and contributors.

    Programming & Tools: Matlab Methods : Gaussian Process Regression, Probabilistic Broken-sticks Modelling, Bayesian Modelling, Auto-encoders and t-SNE Clustering.

    Doctoral Researcher (Data Science)

    University of Surrey

    My thesis work expanded the method of Dynamic Mode Decomposition (DMD) to be used for solving novel problems in the fields of Signal Processing, Machine Learning and Computer Vision. The results from my thesis presented DMD as a promising approach for applications that require feature extraction, including: (i) trends and noise from signals, (ii) micro-level texture descriptor from images, and (iii) coherent structures from image sequences/videos, as well as applications that require suppression of movements from dynamical spatio-temporal image sequences.
