I worked as a Network Engineer and a Computer Scientist in Africa, Europe, and in North America over the last decade, while meeting other cultures, sharpening my skillsets, and nurturing my growth mindset. I enjoy analyzing the Internet architecture, measuring its growth, or using data to shape its performance/future and help provide connectivity anytime, anywhere, on any device and for all. I thus built over 9+ years experience a strong technical background in designing and implementing systems/software for network monitoring, internet measurements, systems design, big data analysis and real-time storage.
