Senior AI Engineer Mphasis, New York, NY 07/2020 - Present

Mphasis Limited is an Indian multinational information technology services and consulting company. Product teams often struggle to balance between release frequency and defect leakage. The trade-off is difficult to manage for teams involved in testing of products with many possible configurations, products with third-party dependency, products that need specific equipment and lab set-up, and hardware products. While almost every organization wants to achieve 100% test automation, not all product teams within the enterprise can achieve that due to the inherent nature of the products. To improve the quality of the testing and optimize beyond test automation, it is useful to use historical data to bring in the power of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML). As a Senior AI Engineer in the Mphasis Cognitive Quality Engineering Group, I led a team of Data Scientists, Machine Learning Engineers, and Data Engineers to design, build. and deploy AI automation solutions specific for manufacturing problems.

Data Scientist Santander Bank, Miami, FL 05/2014 – 01/2017

Served as senior level member of a team of Data Scientists responsible for the development, maintenance, and continued improvement of algorithms for the detection of fraud / financial crime. The team was also responsible for data monetization, which entailed documenting and cleaning data sources and performing analyses to determine which data sources should be kept internal and which could be monetized or sold. Once it was determined that a data set could be sold, the team would then derive data products based on particular use cases and perform market analyses to determine a market value for said data products.

•Utilized multiple machine learning approaches within Python, including time-series analysis, anomaly detection, and imbalanced binary classification.

•Performed cross-validation in Python on various approaches to determine best methodologies for accurately detecting fraud.

•Used Python for further validation to fine tune hyper parameters of models and to perform final model selection.
