Pharma Consulting Firm, Data Scientist Mar 2020 – Present

⦿ Marketing Al: Built a brand agnostic Deep Learning predictor to identify the next best action (content and channel) for a prescriber based on previous sales, mcm engagement, claims, calls, physician attributes helping the brand and marketing team to have better conversations with the prescribers.
⦿ Built a Cl/CD pipeline for an end-to-end run for Physician Cohort creation, Data Preparation, Data Engineering, Model Data Preprocessing, Model Building using MLflow, distributed hyperparameter tuning using hyperopt and SparkTrials, and application of Business rules to the final recommendations.

IT Consulting Firm, ArtificiaI Intelligence Intern May 2019 – Dec 2019

⦿ Face Detection: Created deep learning models for Face Detection, Face Recognition, and Emotion Detection. Performed face clustering to cluster unidentified faces. Created an end-to-end pipeline on AWS using Lambda functions, SNS, SQS, and each of the above models on EC2 as a service. Obtained an accuracy of 98% for emotion detection, 92% for face detection, and 87% for face recognition.
⦿ Object Detection Engine: To detect different objects (trees, fire hydrants, buildings, cars, etc) of interest in a 360-degree street view image using different CNN architectures and using transfer learning on a pre-trained model to create inference scripts as a service. Accuracies for different objects varied across 70% to 93%
⦿ Crime Classifier: Working on the creation of a crime classifier to detect the type of crime (assault, robbery, violence, etc) from videos. Using ConvLSTMs to detect and classify the type.
