Mehmet O.

Data Engineer

Data engineer who is highly enthusiastic about making a contribution to Big Data, Data streaming, Data science, and Data-driven projects.

Mehmet is a Data engineer and software developer with 5+ years of hands-on experience, who is passionate about programming and is eager to expand his skills and explore new technologies.

He has been working on learning from noisy and sparse data for biomedical inverse problems, and as a Data Engineering Team Leader in a startup lately. He is, therefore, vastly experienced in both the theoretical part of machine learning engineering and its practical applications of it at scale.

Some achievements outside of Mehmets professional experience include:

  • NASA Space Apps Challenge, Istanbul, Turkey, 1st Place
  • Siemens Hackathon Industry 4.0, 3rd place
  • NASA Space Apps Challenge, People’s Choice Award.
