I am an employee of Deutsche Telekom AG, working as a data scientist for both commercial and network related use cases. I have profound experience of designing and implementing both analytical and machine learning algorithms in Apache Hadoop ecosystem.
My interest in data modeling started six years ago when I got the chance to work on experimental data during the pursuit of my PhD degree. Unlike structural modeling where the true nature of the data generating process can be modeled in close form, majority of the processes in real world are too complex to be understood in their entirety. Consequently, I gained expertise in several parametric models such as, dynamic stochastic models, time-series analysis and the state-space modeling.
From the beginning of my career as a data scientist at T-Mobile Austria, I have made adequate use of machine learning and applied research in market science and mobile network, which led to several data science projects with attribution to high business value. Since industry demands the end-to-end working solution and not just a prototype, I have mastered several programming languages and have served as the data engineer for most of my use-cases as well.
A brief list of my prowess and skills along with the projects and publications can be found on my linkedIn profile at: https://www.linkedin.com/in/wasifmasood/
