I'm currently researching methods in stream processing using Kafka, Storm, Spark, and Akka. I have a MA in Math and love to code and touch data beginning at the source all the way to the anlaytics and data viz. I'm familiar with the Play framework for building web apps and HTTP API design using Spray.io.
I'm also interested in random forests using non-local kernel methods which generalize the random forests introduced by Breiman. In particular, I spent time with neural decision forests and deep learning. What makes these forests interesting is that they embed feature extraction and can be trained on raw signals.
