I am part of Visa Consulting and Analytics’ Data Science team, helping major organizations adapt and evolve to meet changes taking place in technology, finance and commerce with cutting-edge advanced analytics solutions. As a Senior Data Scientist, I have been driving business transformation across clients in developing South East Asian markets (Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam, Myanmar, and Cambodia), bringing new wave of data solutions and insights by uniting marketing strategies, consumer insights, creativity and analytics. Prior to Visa, I have been with major Global Banks in Philippines, Singapore and Korea for 12 years as a Risk Analytics expert– working with Citibank, DBS and Standard Chartered. I have always tried to find smarter approaches to traditional practices, and had the opportunity to lead, innovate and build analytic capabilities helping banks in their digital transformation to meet the evolving needs of their customers. Committed to learning and personal development, I’m educated with a BSc in Statistics from the University of the Philippines and MSc in Marketing and Consumer Insight from NTU Business School. I also enjoy conducting design thinking workshops, unleashing creativity in individuals and teams to bring forth new ideas and explore opportunities–I believe these are critical for business innovation. Outside work, I am a dedicated paddler who have been with the Filipino expat dragon boat team in Singapore for the past 4 years. Generally, I enjoy an active and healthy lifestyle–you can see me playing football, wakeboarding, cycling, running, hiking and swimming. Inspired by my Spartan friends, I have recently completed two Spartan races and looking forward to joining another one later this year.
