My natural curiosity, talent for developing people, willingness to take on tough challenges, and solve complicated problems are the foundation of my career that spans over 20 years of engineering in high-tech and natural resource industries. During that time, I developed a broad understanding of operations, maintenance, reliability improvement practices, and technology development.
Data analytics and artificial intelligence applications became an interest in 1990 when I did undergraduate projects using fuzzy logic and neural networks. For a few years, I also worked in a competitive intelligence team where we used unique visualizations and developed in-house analytical tools to obtain and process public-domain information from the internet.
Through these experiences, I gained an appreciation of the value that exists in transforming data into intelligence and action. Upon completion of this program, I will be well-equipped to pursue the growing number of complex opportunities in many industrial, commercial, and public sector settings.
