Data Science Manager

Accenture

I am responsible for leading implementations for data science solutions (from scoping to operationalization) on client-facing analytics teams. I am currently serving as lead data scientist advisor for a major Oil & Gas company's Analytics COE.

Predictive Analytics (ML / DL / Time Series)

  • Designed and operationalized signal processing (condition monitoring) and dashboard to identify, detect, and classify SCADA time series signals where methane gas is directly released into the atmosphere for 1500 Oil & Gas wells; integrated into enterprise surveillance system, detects an average of 120+ events per hour where previous, manual reporting found ~160 events in 2020 alone.
  • Designed and operationalized multivariate survival models and dashboard to create a risk scoring system and dashboard for oil wells to support maintenance prioritization;  Currently monitoring for performance drift, coefficient changes, data leakage, regressions in estimation.
  • Serves as an analytics advisor to support high-level data science approaches to business problems and analytics technical architecture for varying size proposals.
  • Manages four direct reports (data scientists)
