Principal Data Scientist
Raj is a strong believer of pattern in chaos. Across his academic and professional career, he has focused on blending data-driven approaches with physics to decode the underlying patterns. Be it the design of a rocket fuel injector for NASA, as part of his Ph.D. dissertation, or analyzing component failures in the automotive industry, or understanding customer purchase patterns in the retail industry, he has focused on using machine learning techniques to develop predictive models. Prior to Noodle.ai, Raj has worked with various Fortune 500 companies such as General Motors, Oracle, and Target where he has focused on data science solutions in the space of engineering design and retail. He comes with a rich work experience of 12+ years, playing key roles in Research and Development and delivery. He holds a Ph.D. and M.S. in Aerospace Engineering from University of Florida, USA and a B. Tech in Naval Architecture from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, India. For fun, Raj is a couch potato and indulges in Bollywood and Hollywood movies. When the weighing scales tip, he gets up for a run.
