Senior Product Manager



I am a Senior Product Manager @ Oracle where I work on building AI and ML powered products that enable Financial Institutions to better prevent and detect Financial Crime and thus make our financial system safer.

I am a data scientist turned product manager and an infinite learner constantly seeking to become a little wiser every single day.

I use this website to write long form articles, summarize books, share my thoughts and publish notes from conferences/seminars/talks I attend.
