I started my career building games as an Android app developer. Soon after, I transitioned to backend web development (JRuby stack). After my masters studies, I started my own firm, delving deep into distributed systems development. I created an enterprise platform to empower business analysts to work with big-data. Currently, I work as an e-commerce developer building complex distributed systems.
I completed my MSc degree in Computer Science at McMaster University as a member of the Data Science Research Lab. My thesis was titled Data Cleaning with Minimal Information Disclosure and lead to 2 publications (ACM JDIQ Journal and ACM CIKM Conference). Additionally, I completed my BSc degree (Hons) in Computer Science at the University of Nottingham, graduating with First Class Honours and a departmental rank of 1/55.
