President

Responsibilities:

  • Development and implementation of statistical arbitrage strategies.
  • Analyzing large data sets involving different data types. Typical data set contains a minimum of 100K rows but could be millions of rows.
  • Developing algorithms to mathematically test different competing ideas to select the best solutions based on predefined KPI’s using historical data sets.
  • Using machine learning and data mining techniques to select the optimal model parameters based on historical data sets.
  • Developing automated trading algorithms that takes as input continuous real time data flows, analyses the flows to determine the optimal real-time parameters for trading model.
  • Validating all models and algorithms to ensure conformance.
  • Deploying automated algorithms and models across board using relevant tools.
  • Developing JAVA wrappers around heritage codes to run on recent platforms.
  • Developing predictive models for consumer relationship management.

Confidential

Responsibilities:

  • Lead a team in developing an Confidential system for the carbon dioxide removal system of the then largest ammonia plant in the world.
  • The process involved using principal component analysis to reduce the variable space significantly while still capturing over 90% of the variance in the system.
  • The reduced variable space was then used to design a system with the capacity to flag abnormal working conditions.

Confidential

Responsibilities:

  • Trained a SVM algorithm to flag spam emails using data from spamasssing.apache.org.
  • The performance of the model on the training set was in excess of 99% with the validation set giving an accuracy of 98%.
  • Currently in the process of training a logistic regression model and neural network to perform the same classification.
  • Trained a neural network to read handwritten numbers with an accuracy of over 98%. Model trained with digitized data set of pictures.
  • Developed a Naïve Bayes mobile phone spam classifier with an accuracy of 97.6%.

Confidential

Responsibilities:

  • Currently developing a recommender system to propose “selections” to different users based on previous use of certain products using regularized linear regression.

Confidential

Responsibilities:

  • Developed a MapReduce scheme to process large text files, about 3GB in size. A typical file is highly unstructured containing names addresses, dollar amounts, etc.
  • The code completes the assigned task in less than a minute on a cluster of 4 nodes. The system developed can be used on the
  • Hadoop distributed file system or any other data repository.
  • Although the typical file size is currently 3GB, the system can be scaled up to handle bigger files.

Confidential

Responsibilities:

  • Designed an online trading platform for financial instruments.
  • The model parameters are “learned” continuously in real time using “tick data” so that current market conditions are always reflected in the model decisions.

Confidential

Responsibilities:

  • Modeled the structure - activity relationship of trimethoprim analogues binding to dyhydrofolate reductase utilizing an SVM algorithm.

ASEE/NSF Industrial Postdoctoral Fellow

Responsibilities:

  • Polycarbonate co-polymer purification/isolation process development and improvement using experimental and numerical techniques.

Confidential

Advanced Process Control Engineer

Responsibilities:

  • Advanced process control on the largest ammonia plant in the world.

Confidential, Austin, TX

Financial Engineer

Responsibilities:

  • Robust portfolio optimization.

Confidential, Austin, TX

Post Doctoral Fellow

Responsibilities:

  • Developed a model for studying sand production in unconsolidated reservoirs.

Confidential, Albuquerque, NM

Research Intern

Responsibilities:

  • Developed an algorithm to numerically measure the rotational and translational diffusivities of spheroidal particles in a solvent in C++.
  • Implemented algorithm for both single and parallel processing.

Confidential

Responsibilities:

  • Designed molecular dynamics simulations that would typically run on multiple computers over many days to study the behavior particulate suspension flows.
  • The typical cluster size ranged from 24 to 48 nodes. Parallel computing was utilized in this project because the problem was embarrassingly parallel - little or no interaction between the “bins” utilized to parameterize the system.

Production Engineering Intern

Responsibilities:

  • Developed integrated production models for the Exxon-NNPC JVC fields.
  • Performed extensive reservoir fluid analysis.
  • Developed and validated a dynamic reservoir model.

Research and Teaching Assistant

Responsibilities:

  • Algorithm development in MATLAB for thermodynamic and process control applications.
