About

An IT Infrastructure Specialist with 13 years of experience, I have developed a profound expertise in systems engineering, particularly in managing high-performance computing (HPC) clusters, performance tuning, and systems automation. My skill set has evolved to encompass modern cloud technologies and DevOps practices, with a specialized focus on integrating AI and ML infrastructures. I am proficient in AWS, Azure, Docker, Kubernetes, Git, Jenkins, and other pivotal DevOps tools, and have substantial experience in optimizing cloud environments specifically for AI and ML applications. This includes automating workflows and implementing advanced security measures with Palo Alto solutions. My expertise is not just technical; it involves driving innovation and efficiency in complex IT infrastructures, ideally suited for supporting academic institutions in developing and enhancing their educational and research programs in AI, ML, and related rapidly advancing technological fields.
