• 2nd rank in NPower forecasting competition (Britain 2017): One day ahead load forecasting using neural network, substantially improved the model from a MAPE of 9% to 4%.

• Credit risk modeling to determine the credit score of a customer using logistic regression. Collapsed and dummy coded nominal variables to increase model’s predictive strength. Used univariate smoothing to incorporate non-linearities in the model. Performed cluster analysis using PCA analysis to create the most parsimonious model while keeping the information lost at minimum.

• Short term load forecasting using gradient boosting with a MAPE of 3.7% on one-year data using SAS.

• Visualized Sales data using tableau, trend analysis and trend adjustment.

• Developed a self-training model which imports and updates weather data from the web and generates hourly forecasts using VBA.

• Monte Carlo Simulation using EXCEL and scenario-based forecasting.

• Automated the reporting system of SK Constructions by using VBA Programming.

• Short term electricity load forecasting using machine learning techniques both supervised and unsupervised learning (ANN, SVM, kernel-based regression) using python.

• Used ARENA in Processing Systems and simulation’s project to recreate the working environment of a warehouse and determined the number of workers for maximum profitability.
