An order lifecycle transparency, aggregated network statistics, and real-time exception prediction solution for WayFair Supply Chain Management using Big Data Engineering and Machine Learning Models. I turned an idea into a working solution in just 48 hours. The project has been taken over by the SCM Team and will be implemented to save ~$10 Million/year in carrier operations.
Technology Stack: Python Flask, Jupyter Notebooks, MSSQL, Google Big Query, Hadoop, Kubernetes, Docker, Jenkins, Graphana, Kibana, VueJS, CSS Bootstrap
At Wayfair, we deal with very large amounts of data in a Hadoop cluster, often ranging over multiple petabytes with several dozens of terabytes of data arriving on a daily basis. I came up with a project plan and implemented an interactive solution to constantly monitor storage capacity, identity usage patterns, estimate storage requirements, and facilitate potential data migration to cloud (GCP) for existing business users to ensure business continuity.
Technology Stack: Python Flask, MariaDB, Apache Kafka, Hadoop, Google DataStudio, Kubernetes, Docker, Jenkins, Graphana, Kibana, LDAP, Puppet, Terraform
Improved existing ETL processes and developed an infrastructure (distributed) that works well with any event-oriented, clickstream, time-series, or telemetry data, especially streaming datasets from Apache Kafka. This system enables teams to ingest and query large volumes of data without compromising performance. I have also set up and enabled an intuitive interface for engineers and business users to explore and visualize their datasets to make data-driven decisions.
Technology Stack: Apache Druid, Apache Superset, MariaDB, Apache Kafka, Hadoop, Hive, SQL, Presto, Python, Kubernetes, Docker, Jenkins, Graphana, Kibana, LDAP, Puppet, Terraform
I built an API-driven Flask application handling over 100,000 calls per month performing at 90% cache efficiency to collect metrics associated with Github and Gitlab code reviews to cater code ownership and enable code quality reviews to reduce technical debt. I cleared several performance bottlenecks for large-scale deployments for a codebase with over 10M LOC (lines of code)
Technology Stack: Python, Flask, MSSQL, Redis, RESTful APIs, Kubernetes, Docker, Jenkins, Github/Gitlab Integration, Graphana, Kibana, Puppet
I built an online geospatial analytical platform to access relevant information with powerful visualization options to help security experts, researchers, data analyst and journalist for decision-making. I manage to convert time-consuming manual data collection and reporting processes into an easy to use online system to collaborate then disseminate information with colleagues and executives with just a click of a button.
A web-based project with one of the major Bank in UK to help them visualize and detect Fraudulent Credit Card Transactions across UK. The project was a great success as we visualized ~1.5 Million transactions at once on the map using some advanced mapping techniques.
Technology Stack: CodeIgniter, PHP, Bootstrap, JQuery, MySQL, PostgreSQL, ETL, OpenLayers, TileStache, Mapproxy, MorrisJS Charts, RESTful APIs, Geofencing, Geocoding
A collection of RESTful APIs to support geospatial data processing and mapping server similar to Google/Mapbox to visualize information. I built & setup in-house mapping technology stack including mapping, routing, elevation, and geocoding servers to help us process, aggregate and visualize big data at no or minimal cost.
Technology Stack: Laravel, PHP, Bootstrap, JQuery, MySQL, PostgreSQL, OpenStreetMap, OSRM (open source routing engine) Osmosis, Imposm3, GDAL, OpenLayers, Leaflet, DevExtreme Charts, RESTful APIs, Routing, Geofencing, Geocoding, Elevation
I built a web-based application that makes journey management easy. It helps customers to plan and schedule journeys, dispatch resources, monitor movement and review the use of resources. Ultimately, It helps customers make their journey management more efficient while helping to keep their employees safe.
Technology Stack: Laravel, PHP, Bootstrap, JQuery, MySQL, PostgreSQL, OpenLayers, DevExtreme Charts, RESTful APIs, Routing, Geofencing, Geocoding
A secure cloud based application to help large organisations to track their people in frontier regions to ensure safety and used of various Data Science techniques to combine multiple data sources and Algorithms to help executives answer difficult questions on demand at minimal cost and time.
Technology Stack: CodeIgniter, PHP, Bootstrap, JQuery, MySQL, PostgreSQL, ETL, OpenLayers, D3.js, NvD3, RESTful APIs, International SOS integration, Geocoding
A web-based real-time monitoring platform to visualise mission critical information with options to collaborate and respond to real time alerts triggered by people operating in remote locations. GRID has saved 100’s of lives of people operating in High-Risk regions.
Technology Stack: NodeJS, Sockets, MySQL, PostgreSQL, PostGIS, Redis, OpenLayers, RESTful APIs, GPS Feeds, Satellite Feeds, Routing, Geofencing, Geocoding
An Smartphone App that let our customers locate their staff when it matters, enabling a quick and effective response, and keeping their team safe. SearchLight our recent development in response to the unpredictable incidents/disruptions we are seeing across Europe & the US.
