Hi! I am Yaseen, currently studying MS Computer Science at Saarland University and working as Research Assistant with Prof. Jilles Vreeken. I have also been awarded Internation Max Plank Research Scholarship by Max-Plank Institüt für Informatik. In the past I have worked as Machine Learning Engineer at Gaditek - a Cyber Security company. I did my Bachelors in Computer and Information Systems Engineering from NED University of Engineering and Technology, Pakistan.
I like to study information processing systems that are capable of learning, adaptation, and reasoning from structured or unstructured data, environment, labeled examples, and expert demonstration. I have also worked on developing software infrastructure for Big Data and Machine Learning pipelines.
I’m currently exploring methods and techniques for anomaly detection in sequences ranging from simple univariate event sequences to complex multivariate event sequences over several attributes. This work builds on earlier methods proposed by ther group.
Studying MS Computer Science (Apr 2019 - )
Awarded International Max Planck Research School Scholarship
Research Intern (June 2016 - August 2016)
In German, Deutsches Forschungszentrum für Künstliche Intelligenz
This internship was part of Smart Agriculture project collaboration between NED University (Pakistan) and DFKI (Germany). During this internship I learned how AI and ML is being used at DFKI to solve many different problems in fields like agriculture, farming, smart books/learning, document understanding and segmentation.
As part of my project study, I gave following 2 presentations:
Commercial and Research Landscape for Smart Irrigation Systems - Presented as part of an initial project study at DFKI.
Research Student (June 2015 - December 2016)
Supervisor: Dr. Muhammad Khurram (NED UET)
At RCAI I worked mainly on projects leveraging the Internet of Things (IoT) technology.

Project presentation: A Smart Safety Gadget for Avoiding Accidents in Warehouse Environment
Machine Learning Engineer (December 2016 - March 2019)
Problems I have worked with:
Customer churn Identifying the reasons of churn Support marketing teams in designing targeted campaigns based on data driven insights Predict customers that are more likely to churn A consistent and company-wide accepted measure of churn.
Infrastructure health, and capacity planning In this project I worked on development and deployment of data ingestion and storage pipeline. Collection and robust, scalable storage of machine generated metrics of a global network. The data was then used for monitoring the health of global IT infrastructure. Aid in scheduled load and capacity planning. This also reduced the manual effort of gathering data and compiling hefty reports, and increased accuracy and visibility.
Research Student (January 2015 - April 2015)
In Electronics Design Center I was responsible for:
Freelance Remote Web Developer (August 2012 - October 2014)
As a freelancer with Hyphen Consultancy I worked on:
Database driven Web Applications (Primarily PHP and MySQL, occasionally ASP.Net and MS SQL Server) Rich Internet Applications using Google Web Toolkit (Java)
I did following online courses to enhance my knowledge of Machine Learning and data analytics platforms
