Work Experience

Machine Learning Engineer, Cognizant Softvision, 2019 - present

Main projects:

- Hybrid recommender system for trader matching on bond market area. Based on a single or a list of bonds the user wants to sell or buy, return top traders who might be interested in them.

- Automation of trading sessions generated by admins to see on which bonds would be better to generate swarms and at what price.

- Virtual try-on app for a lipstick brand that thanks to its artificial intelligence-based facial recognition, landmarks detection, virtual and augmented reality technology lets you virtually try on any color of lipstick and see how the shade will look on your lips.

- Demand forecasting system based on different metrics related to demand but also on different third-party data to see how factors like weather or economicalindicators will affect sales in the future.

Tools: Python, Visual Studio Code, JupyterLab, PyCharm, AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, Dataiku, Neo4j, Flask API, Git, Jira.

Senior Data Scientist, Evalueserve, 2018 - 2019

Main projects:

- Provide technical support to create solutions that can be integrated into sales campaigns.

- Provide time series forecasting models to predict sales values on short, medium and long term.

- Develop real-time dashboards on multiple data sources (Azure, SQL Server, Access, SharePoint) to monitor the activity of different operational KPIs in the
