I'm a computer scientist and software engineer that adores functional programming, supports open source development, works on machine learning (ML) and natural language processing (NLP) algorithms, and never stops innovating and growing.

My personal software development style focuses strongly on functional programming. Because much of my ML and NLP based work deals with big data, I'm always concerned about program performance. And in these situations, I break from my functional side-effect free philosophy to carefully use mutability correctly. To this end, I am a huge fan of the Scala language.
