This is an old revision of the document!


My name is Luis Moreira-Matias and I have a MsC in Software Engineering and a Phd in Machine Learning from U. Porto since 2009 and 2015, respectively.

After ~4 years(2014-2018) leading AI-based research lines at NEC Research Labs (Heidelberg, Germany), I am Head of Data Science at Kreditech (Hamburg, Germany) since 2018 - where I work on applications for Consumer Loan business, namely, 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/datasets on a fully automatic fashion. On the application side, I have a strong interest on Financial Services (2 yrs. exp.), followed by Transportation (9 yrs. exp.) and Retail.

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 also use Python/C/C++. For additional information, please check my CV.

Thank you for visiting my personal homepage!
