I’m a Sr. Data Scientist (DS) at Imperva. Although my current role is primarily a DS in the Marketing Ops org, I somehow always find myself undertaking projects in other areas of the business as well (Finance, Sales, even Diversity & Inclusion). Previous to Imperva, I worked for Raytheon under the Information Technology – Digital Solutions group where I learned a great deal about how a large corporation works, their pain points, and the business questions a defense contractor are constantly trying to solve. I don’t think the role of a Data Scientist has yet been articulated into a universally accepted standard. Coincidentally though, many of the skills/expertise that ARE typically associated with DS roles, match my background and aspirations I have in; applying learnt practices in data/actuarial science to business processes, enterprise systems, financial risk, data integration, machine learning models, and data analytics that turn data into knowledge and help drive data driven business decisions. I live in the Bay Area where I think I fit in quite well among the other tech savvy geeks. Please follow, like, or share posts as I share my interests, hobbies, and experiences with you. I take pride in my ability to self-help by finding my answers online… but that’s not possible without the plethora of youtube videos/blogs out there and the willings to share their helpful content, so this -my website- is my attempt at trying to give back and contribute to that space.
