Past Consulting Projects

Large Japanese Bank

Designed, developed, and set up dashboards/detection rules for a SIEM system to be deployed in the customer's SOC (security operations center). Received outstanding review from customer for resolving about 10 critical issues over a month, working directly with executives.

Small Hong Kong Bank

Reference from customer:
Very very strong problem-solving skill and time management skill to resolve technical issues related to SIEM in my previous company. The issues had been dragged for over a year and he could resolve it in less than 10 days. In addition, he is a very nice and humble and willing to share his knowledge to anyone. Very impressive.

SchoolCity, Inc.

Over the course of three years, I worked as a consultant with the team at SchoolCity, a software company targeted at K-12 schools. For my project, I developed from scratch a new type of backend OMR engine (for automated grading of bubble marked sheets), which involved leveraging the TWAIN API to talk with scanners and designing several innovative pixel-level graphics algorithms. The product was deployed to many customers (school teachers), first being released for scanner-based scoring and later being released for webcam-based scoring.
