Professional Experience
My passion for technology drew me to IBM Strategy&Analytic Consulting Graduate Program, where I worked with clients implementing creative big data and machine learning solutions to address business needs, mainly in the Financial Service Sector.

After 2 years I moved to lead the Big Data practice at Sanitas (A Health Insurance company part of Bupa). I supervised a team of 13 for implementation of a new Information Infrastructure (Data Lake) with six innovative business cases including real time commercial Decisions, image pattern recognition, IoT (Wearables). (€2MM Project)

I am also an associate professor at IE Business School, teaching at the Data Analytics Master a full semester course about basics of big data technologies and steps required to launch a big data project (Material covered: Hadoop, Cloud Computing etc.)

In addition, my entrepreneurial spirit has lead me to Co-found BlipApp, an innovative patented application that helps you with your presentation.

I’m currently completing INSEAD’s MBA program (Class July 2018) with a focus in Entrepreneurship and Technology.
