I am passionate about building software, specifically around machine learning, computer vision, medical imaging, and computer security. Since 2016, I have been developing new products at a technology accelerator 4Catalyzer, currently leading the deep learning team at Hyperfine. Previously at Cisco, Siemens, and RPI, see my journey below.
In each of my previous roles, I started something out of nothing (in addition to my main job) which grew and ended up in a product. I like taking calculated risks and taking on life adventures. I drove from New York to Cancun once.
Cisco acquired university startup Cognitive Security that built machine learning tools for network threat defense that analyzed billions of network traffic logs every day. I lead the the design and development of new machine learning algorithms for detecting and classifying new types of malware and for building label database from handful of manually analyzed threats. It all started when a tight group of smart scientists and engineers got together and started building new engines that are now critical for Cisco's security business and a number of products.
