Between 2014-2018, I've led AI research lines at NEC Research Labs (Heidelberg, Germany), Currently, I am Head of Data Science at Kreditech (Hamburg, Germany) - where I lead ~15 braves on developing ML applications for Consumer Loan business (e.g.: credit scoring, pricing and customer affordability).
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 (3 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. Occasionally, I've also used Python/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 attemptly deliver product-grade software enabling the deployment of our ML frameworks. For additional information, please check my CV.
