Why data science? During one of my consulting stints I built a biofeedback-driven mobile therapy session solution for a U.S. based healthcare company. I implemented proprietary algorithms to compute mind calmness scores based on the real-time EEG data of kids diagnosed with ADHD.

As part of developing serious gaming channels to deliver therapy and biofeedback response, I have witnessed the frontier the client has opened by helping kids understand their own brains. This experience convinced me of the potential data science holds in building next wave of technology and extending human experience.

Research and Career Interests: To build tools that can enable a highly synchronized financial and operational cadence across an organization, and to identify healthy digital alternatives to replace addictions, including digital addictions.
