I am a Ph.D. researcher on large-scale contextual time-aware anomaly detection and prediction systems for CERN CMS HCAL detector.

I received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Computer Engineering at EiT-M, Mekelle University, Ethiopia, with honors of Gold-Medal Award, in 2012 and 2016, respectively. Moreover, I conducted my Master's thesis and post-graduate research on machine learning for non-intrusive load monitoring (NILM) of complex systems at Midori Srl, an innovative start-up in energy efficiency incubated in I3P, Italy. 

Furthermore, I am a former academic member of Mekelle University (2012-2017) and Polytechnic of Turin, Italy, (2018-2020), who researched and developed various AI-powered industrial data science and monitoring applications for energy analysis, telecommunication, automotive, software computational energy consumption and natural language processing.

My research interest revolves around data science, machine learning, and deep leaning for data-driven modeling of time-series, anomaly detection, IoT, and Industry 4.0.
