Also, performed ad hoc data analysis in HDFS environment which involved writing Pig statements and Hive queries.

Data engineering project:

The purpose of the project was to use extensive data analysis on the transaction data and come up with risk factors that
server as upstream to various risk models

Transaction data was extracted from various data sources like Sql server and Hive using python module called
Performed extensive data wrangling on the extracted data using pandas and numpy modules in Python
Pushed the transformed data back to a table in SQL server
Encapsulated the entire process into a single workflow using the luigi module in Python so that it runs perpetually in
small batches
Used Pythons multiprocessing capabilities to run multiple processes for different time periods based on available
memory on the server

Technical environment: SQL server 2008, Debian, Python 2.7, Hive

Network visualization tool:

The purpose of the project was to come up with a network visualization tool as a proof of concept that would help the
fraud investigation teams in identifying patterns by inspecting the network associated with the transacting customer

Built a Neo4j database (graph database) by using the relational data from SQL server database
Neo4j database served as the data source for the tool
Used python modules like Py2neo to connect to the Neo4j db from python
Wrote nosql queries to come up with networked data which was up to 5 levels deep
Built a python class and used pandas and igraph modules to perform necessary aggregations on the raw networked
Transformed the aggregated data into JSON
Built a website using Python microframework called Flask
Used ajax,jquery to link the drop down buttons to the back end
Used d3.js library to render graphs from the JSON data
Added various buttons on the front end
Used extensive javascript to filter through the graphs based on button clicks
Deployed the web application on a private IP from a docker container

Technical environment: Debian, Python 2.7, Neo4j 3.0, Sql server 2008, d3.js v3, jquery, ajax, HTML
