Data Science and Analytics: Mar 2015 to Jul 2019
Achieved savings of $2.3 million by identifying and targeting customers who are more likely to churn by building Random Forest Classifier in Python. Improved the performance and ensured generalizability (not overfitting) of the built Random Forest Classifier by carrying out Hyper Parameter Tuning using Grid Search with five-fold Cross Validation.
Implemented end to end analytical solution -- including defining analytical business problem, defining population, defining dependent variable, gathering independent variables from various data sources using Hive (HQL), feature engineering, model building & deployment, ROI Analysis and model performance tracking (by building Tableau dashboard).
Carried out Exploratory Data Analysis to understand the associations among variables. Performed data cleaning and feature engineering. Carried out regularization (Lasso Logistic Regression) for feature selection using Python.
Built a sensitivity analysis tool in Tableau and performed sensitivity analysis to decide operational cut offs on the model scores.
Performed A/B testing to establish causal relationship between marketing programs and reduction in churn rates.
Increased the Average Revenue per user of a telecom provider, by 1%, by building Cross Sell Model (Logistic Regression) using R programming to identify and target the customers who are more likely to upgrade their monthly plan.
Created interaction terms based on the insights generated from Decision Trees and included the created features to improve performance of the Logistic Regression Model. Carried out Stepwise Logistic Regression technique for feature selection.
Segmented customers based on their usage characteristics to recommend personalized offer plans using K-Means Clustering.
BI and Reporting: Aug 2014 to Mar 2015
Built customer management Data Mart that contains information on customer call data, plan data, caller network using SQL. Performed several adhoc analysis on user call data to generate business insights and built dashboards using Tableau.
Communicated business insights and results from the analysis to peers, managers and stakeholders by preparing presentations.
Data Base Administrator (DBA): Jun 2012 to Aug 2014
Database planning, installation, creation, upgradation (10g -> 11gR2), patch installation and end to end maintenance.
User and privilege management, tablespace management, data import/export to adhere data retention policy.
Query optimizations to improve efficiency by 20% and provided 24*7 support to business-critical transactions.
Performed data migrations from 9 to 3 databases as a part of consolidation to decommission 9 physical servers and thus contributed in removing inventory wastes.
Property Insurance Churn Prediction – Predictive Modelling Project:
Built a classification model using Random Forest to predict the customers who are most likely to churn. Performed data cleaning, feature engineering, exploratory data analysis, hyper parameter tuning, feature selection.
