Software Engineer II

About

As a Software Engineer on the PROSE team I work to bridge the conceptual gap between research and engineering by taking the forefront of academic progress and delivering it in products to surprise and delight our customers. I am particularly interested in how we can apply these learning in solving everyday problems for people across the globe.

I have previously worked to develop large-scale distributed REST API’s supporting over a billion monthly active users. I focused on creating and processing the telemetry gained from services in a way to provide actionable insights to improve products. In addition, I have undertaken independent research into Bayesian and neural networks, and also worked alongside researchers and colleagues within the domain of active-segment detection.

I look forward to working and developing within Microsoft and alongside innovative and like-minded people. I am always open for conversations or a cup of tea.
