I have recently joined MSD, a biotech pharmaceutical company, as Regional Associate Director, Business Tech Analysis, IT and Analytics. I started my journey into Big Data and AI at IBM first and Optum (UnitedHealth Group) then, after several years as Java Developer and Architect. I am based in Dublin, Ireland. In 2018 I started being an international speaker (I gave talks to several conferences such as DataWorks Summit Berlin, Google I/O Extended, AI with the Best and many others) and in 2019 I was a speaker at the DataWorks Summit Barcelona and the Voxxed Days Milan conference and I am a confirmed speaker at other events, including the key notes of the 2nd Annual Cyber Security & Artificial Intelligence Summit. My first book “Hands-on Deep Learning with Apache Spark” (https://tinyurl.com/y7d98s64) has been released in January 2019.
