Nikolay Manchev - Machine Learning and Data Science Enthusiast

Short biography

I have over 10 years of database experience and have been involved in large scale migration, consolidation, and data warehouse deployment projects in the UK and abroad.

I am a speaker, blogger, author of numerous articles and a book on advanced database topics. I've been working exclusively in the big data (Hadoop) space since 2015, with focus on Spark and machine learning. I have an M.Sc. in Software Technologies and an M.Sc. in Data Science (City University London).

As of July 2015 I am part of IBM Analytics in the UK.
