Have academic background in Machine Learning, Data Mining, Algorithm Design, Social Networks Analysis, and Natural Language Processing. My research interest 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 & Dr. Ali Shoja as my PhD supervisors.

I have 3 years industrial experience in building advanced Machine Learning Algorithms for predicting Click Through Rate for Online Display Ads. This was done by real-time analysis of a very large volume of ad performance data shown on websites.

I have more than 3 years 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 one year experience in Online Fraud Detection where I was responsible to design/implement Machine Learning algorithms to analyze Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn & other social networks data in order to detect Fake/Fraud Digital Identities.
