I am a research fellow at NTNU (Norway) with broad interests in data mining and machine learning using probabilistic graphical models. Lately, my research has focused on scalable machine learning methods for solving real use cases in the financial (BCC group) and automotive industry (Daimler group). I am coauthor of more than 50 scientist papers in different journal and international conferences covering applied areas such as bioinformatics, information retrieval, crime prediction and sales forces allocation. I have been speaker in dozens of international conferences related to machine learning research over the last fifteen years. Recently, our team has been invited to present the AMIDST toolbox at the open source conference Flink-Forward 2016.
