Let's talk Data Science, Computer Science Research, & Leadership;


An expert in Artificial Intelligence (AI) with vast experience in data science fields of machine learning, deep learning, and data representations & knowledge engineering, with a PhD in Computer Science. Currently working on Subgroup Analysis in several domains including Health Care. I am a research scientist at IBM Research Africa. I previously worked as a research scientist at Fraunhofer Institute for Intelligent Analysis and Information Systems (IAIS) and the Institute for Applied Informatics (InFAI). I am an alumnus of the DAAD scholarship program and the Smart Data Analytics group at the University of Bonn.


My research involves topics Subgroup Analysis, specifically Subset Scanning, and Autostratification, Conversational AI and Machine Learning, specifically in Aligning Textual elements to Knowledge Graphs for Question Answering, Dialogue Systems, and  Disambiguation. I am a Faculty at Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology -  JKUAT (currently on study leave), where I have been involved in teaching several AI and programming courses. I am an experienced software engineer with a master of science degree in software engineering. 

In 2019, l got my proposal for Domain Knowledge Graph-based Question Answering accepted for inclusion in the Software Campus program 2019 where my team shall deliver a working prototype for QA on domain KGs working in collaboration with our industry partners DATEV eG.


I have attended several top conferences in Computational Linguistics, Artificial Intelligence, and the Web including being a member of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL). Before this, I worked in several capacities notably: leading the team that carried out the Computer Science for High Schools (CS4HS) Program - 2012 at JKUAT, Coordinating curriculum development and Syllabus review processes including mainstreaming sustainable development goals into the curriculum. 


I work with a team of professionals who possess skills and experience in AI and Business related domains including data science, strategic management, and leadership. 

 We shall offer you advice based on tailored research for your organization, be it a government agency or private business enterprise.  This ranges from local optimization activities involving tasks such as identifying which technology to acquire, characterizing your data, and offering tools for processing; up to and including enterprise-wide restructuring that could lead to change in organizational culture and Business Process Re-engineering.

 . In the latter case, we shall provide the leadership your team needs in digital transformation and offer corporate training on targeted skills. The aim is to strategically position your business to take advantage of disruptive technologies and give yourself a chance to have one of three things: 1. Technology-based Strategic Planning, 2. Customer Satisfaction and Loyalty 3. A digitally aware and Agile workforce.    



PhD Thesis Online Link : My PhD thesis is now available Online (29th October, 2021) : Knowledge Context for Entity and Relation Linking  



PhD Defense : I successfully defended my PhD. with grade Magna Cum Laude 1st of September, 2021 

Job            : I willl move to IBM-Research Africa as a Research Scientist starting May, 2021 


Award       : Arjun paper was the best paper runner up in Web Information System Engineering Conference 2020.
