Senior Research Data Scientist ,OLX, Gurgaon, India.
Dr. S. Kumar received his PhD from University Politecnica of
Catalunya (UPC) (2010), Barcelona, Spain. His dissertation involved research related algorithm development for solving Partial Deferential Equations (PDE) by numerical simulation. A practical case of axial piston pump machine was chosen and complete analyses were performed by doing Numerical Simulations of coupled PDE equations to optimize pump performance. Prior to Olx, India, he worked as a Research Scientist at CEMEF, France. His work there involved development of a novel numerical technique to transfer data between two meshes for Forging ALE simulations. He also worked as a Data scientist at Essex and Lake Group, India where he mostly focused on predictive modeling. His other educational background includes a B. Tech. (chemical Engineering) which he gained in 2006 from the IIT (Indian Institute of Technology), Guwahati, India.
His current focus involves developing advance analytical techniques and machine learning techniques for modelling and information extraction from structured and un-structured data.
