I am an engineer and tech leader, with a passion for machine learning and distributed systems. I am a Director of Applied Science at Onfido since Feb 2021. Before that, I led the product recommendation team at Criteo and the embeddded image processing team at Thales Optronics. I graduated from MIT with a PhD in robotics/computer vision in 2010, under the supervision of prof. Seth Teller. I am a reviewer for NeurIPS and ICML (since 2019) and ICLR (starting 2021).
In 2005-2010, during my PhD years, I built end-to-end, real-time vision-based systems for navigation assistants under the supervision of the highly missed Prof. Seth Teller. This work was published at CVPR'07, ICCV'09 and ICRA'10.
In 2006-2007, I was a core member of the MIT DARPA Challenge Team. We developed one of the first self-driving cars and reached fourth place in Finale (only six teams out of several dozens made it to the Finale). We published our design at IJFR'08. A defining chapter of my career!
In 2018, I led a complete redesign of the Criteo recommendation engine using representation learning, at the scale of billions of users and millions of items. We delivered multiple-fold uplifts in clicks and sales on the Acquisition product. Paper under review.
