R&D Lead


Sep 2017 – Aug 2019 Amsterdam, the Netherlands
At Sightcorp I applied state-of-the-art Deep Learning for Computer Vision while constrained by business priorities and maintaining a solid code base for repeatable experimentation. I lead my colleagues and myself to achieve competitive results for face detection systems by exploiting overlapping expertise and coming up with innovative solutions by collaborating in brainstorming.


I am always willing to talk about collaboration or supervision. Please find my contact info at the top of the page.
