About Me

I am an Applied Scientist in Zalando, the largest online fashion retailer in Europe.

Before moving to Industry, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Insight Centre for Data Analytics at Dublin City University working in Computer Vision projects with Industry partners. During my doctoral studies, I was supervised by Prof Alan Smeaton and I visited Arizona State University as a Fulbright research scholar.

I am a computing enthusiast. I love to explore new fields, learn new technologies, and challenge myself in a way that allows me to make an impact on society. I also like sports, travelling, meeting people and learning from new cultures.

My research is in Artificial Intelligence and Applied Machine Learning. I worked on a variety of projects; from Computer Science Education using traditional Machine Learning and embeddings to fire finding drones with Computer Vision and transfer learning to Fintech approaches combining banking and social data.
