Leadership Experience:

Managing Data Scientist since 2016, with success in hiring and developing talent

As a Research Scientist at Fermilab, served in the following leadership roles

Leader of Data-Quality Group of 20 physicists at DZero experiment at Fermilab

Shift-captain in DZero Control-Room: sole supervisor of 10 shifters and a $300-million apparatus during 8-hour data-collection periods. Only the most trusted collaborators are made captain.

Chairperson of Women Scientists' and Engineers' Group at Fermilab Honors:

Waystar Value Award Winner, 2018

Recipient of Fermilab's LPC Travel Fellowship (2011) for visit to CERN (Switzerland), for collaborative research for the discovery of the Higgs boson.

Certificate of Achievement for “Captain Dedicated Shifter” at DZero, 2009.

Gold medal, University of Delhi (1997) for first rank in MS out of a class of 175 students.

Certificate of Merit (1992), All India Senior Secondary Certificate Examination, Std XII, for being among the top 0.1% of successful candidates in India; Gold medal for first rank in city.

Gandhi Centenary Scholarship (1990-1995) awarded by Steel Authority of India Limited. This scholarship is in recognition of excellent academic record at national level. Job Experience:

Current: Managing Data Scientist (2016 to present) – Waystar, Chicago, IL

Data Scientist (2014 to 2015) – Waystar, Chicago, IL

2003-2013: Research Scientist – resident at Fermilab, IL, and CERN, Switzerland, and representing University of Buffalo, NY (2010-2013); University of Oklahoma, OK (2003-2009)

Led successful projects in particle physics in two international experiments at Fermilab and CERN that culminated into the Discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012. My projects involved software development in C++ and application of state-of-the-art Machine Learning techniques on terabytes of data, with results published in leading Physics journals.
