Innovation and Research
I authored more than 200 patents (130+ already
issued) in the area of machine learning and artificial intelligence. I also published many peer-reviewed papers and book chapters. My H-index is 20. Furthermore, I published two
monograms in the Springer Tracts in Advanced Robotics series (STAR): my PhD thesis as a monograph
(volume 93) and the proceedings of
DARS2010 (volume 83).
I built 3 engineering teams built from the ground up. This amounts to more than 50
engineers hired, coached, and managed across a broad range of geographies and disciplines (software
engineering, machine learning, data science, cloud engineering, data visualization, front-end design).
I have a broad expertise in managing agile teams to deliver reliable software using
continuous integration and delivery strategies, test automation, code reviews, pair programming, and cloud
I lead the design and development of 3 products at Cisco used by 1000+ enterprise
customers, including many Fortune 500, from inception to customer delivery in production.
My 10-year tenure at Cisco allowed me to gain insights into a broad technological landscape,
including cybersecurity, internet of things, wireless networks, internet architecture, endpoint
classification, and cloud computing.
