I am a passionate computer science engineer with a curious mind and a strong appetite for learning. I enjoy working with data to solve difficult problems with creativity. I have a special interest in machine learning, data mining and statistical analysis.

I earned my M.Sc. in Big Data from Simon Fraser University. Presently, I'm solving challenging problems in banking, finance and risk and gaining valuable experience as a Data Scientist at Scotiabank.

I can help you understand your data better to find interesting patterns and extract useful information that will add to the value of your business. I can help you understand and define problems clearly, and devise robust and efficient solutions to your big data challenges.

I am on Oracle Certified PL SQL Developer Associate. I am proficient in SQL and have hands-on experience in working with MySQL and PostgreSQL in addition to Oracle database. I am proficient in statistical analysis and data visualization using R, object oriented programming with Python, and web development using HTML, CSS, JavaScript besides other technical skills. I have hands-on experience in big data technologies such as Spark, Hadoop, MapReduce, Hive and HBase.

I have solid analytical and problem solving skills. I can communicate in clear, concise and comprehensive manner, and explain even fairly complex concepts to a non-technical audience in an easy to understand manner. I have strong team skills and the ability to work independently with rigour and efficiency.

If there is a challenging data science or big data opportunity at your company, I would be very interested in exploring it with you.
