Between 2014-2018, I've led AI research lines for Predictive Analytics at NEC Research Labs (Heidelberg, Germany), 2018-2020, where I led ~15 braves on developing ML applications for Consumer Loan business (e.g.: credit scoring) as Head of Data Science at Monedo (Hamburg, Germany) (ex-Kreditech). Currently, I am Head of Data Science at Finiata leading all Data processes and teams on bringing ML-based products for Business Lending to reality.
My main interests are: Supervised Learning (Classification/Regression/Time Series Analysis), Adaptive Learning systems (to learn from non stationary distributions) and Automated Machine Learning (AutoML) - i.e., to learn how to develop different ML pipelines tailored to different projects/verticals on a fully automated fashion. On the application side, I am interested on Financial Services (5 yrs. exp.), followed by Transportation (9 yrs. exp.) and Retail/E-commerce.
Together with the amazing collaborators that I had the opportunity to work with in my professional career, I've developed prototypes over my own novel learning frameworks using mainly R and, lately, Python over AWS Cloud tech stack. Occasionally, I've also used /C/C++.
Nowadays, I focus more on Data Science Management and Data Executive/Strategist roles. Firstly, this implies to create, roll-out and oversee an organization-wide data processing strategy and a regulation-compliant roadmap for its monetization (with proprietary ML technology and in-house R&D). Secondly, I am focused on how to hire, groom and retain exceptional Data Science talent, as well as to manage, supervise and organize them to deliver on-time product-grade software which enables the deployment of our ML frameworks.
