Hi, I am Abhinav. I am a passionate data science professional with a curious mind and a strong appetite for learning. I enjoy working with data to solve difficult problems with creativity.

I earned my M.Sc. in Big Data from Simon Fraser University. Presently, I work as Data Scientist at IIROC in Toronto and solve challenging problems in capital markets, finance and risk using AI and Machine Learning.

My education and extensive professional experience enables me with a unique combination of technical skills and business acumen.

I am an Oracle Certified PL SQL Developer Associate. I am proficient in SQL and have expertise in working with a variety of relational and non-relational databases. I have strong programming skills with Python, Scala, R and a host of different languages. I have practical experience with tools like Spark, Hive, MapReduce, etc. in the Hadoop ecosystem. I also have strong BI and visualization skills with tools like Tableau.
