Kazem Jahanbakhsh, PhD

I'm a Technology Entrepreneur and Data Scientist. I completed my PhD in Computer Science in 2012. Have academic background in Machine Learning, Data Mining, Algorithm Design, Social Networks Analysis, and Natural Language Processing. My research focus is in extracting interesting patterns/signals from big data which can be turned into valuable business/marketing actions. I was lucky to have Dr. Valerie King and Dr. Ali Shoja as my PhD supervisors.

Since 2012, I have been designing/implementing advanced Machine Learning Algorithms for predicting conversion rates for display Ads. This is done by real-time analysis of a large volume of ad performance data shown on websites to users.

I have industrial/research experience in building complicated NLP models such as Topic Modeling, Name Entity Recognition, Sentiment Analysis, & Spam Detection. Have more than 7 years experience in designing/building predictive models to forecast results of political elections, marketing campaigns, & flu outbreaks by mining/analyzing unstructured data from online social networks such as Twitter.

I have experience in online fraud detection where I was responsible to design/implement Machine Learning algorithms analyzing Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn & other social networks data and detect fake/fraud digital identities.
