Biography

My area of expertise is that of applied research in the fields of machine learning, optimization and algorithm engineering. I work to transform recent advances in these research areas into practical “Big Data” systems, ranging from predictive and recommender systems to automated text analysis and resource optimization. While nowadays off-the-shelf business analytics solutions abound, developing state of the art data solutions does result in significant competitive advantages.

I am also an active researcher in machine learning and convex optimization, with around 25 scientific publications in international journals and conferences, as well as a lecturer at MSc level courses on these topics.
