Secondly my ability to lead teams through change by being resourceful and taking a flexible approach to management using a collaborative method but providing clear vision and direction to align staff goals to management strategies, retain and develop talent, and form productive teams that can seamlessly navigate between individual and team objectives; delivering helpful change for the organization. Thirdly my mastery of the art and science of the field through years of multi-disciplinary research, applied knowledge of the industry as it has evolved over the last two decades, and capability of taking a high-level vision and executing across diverse team structures, technologies, and functional areas, delivering quality products with quantifiable business impact.
My research is in the field of Logical Artificial Intelligence: A broad research area in Computer Science at the boundaries with Logic, Linguistics, Philosophy of Language, Psychology, and Economics. It is concerned with modeling human information processing and linguistic processes, especially natural language, in pragmatics and discourse, exploring the dynamics of interaction among agents and the underlying social, ethical, and cognitive mechanisms affecting language use.

Farishta is perhaps one of the most professional engineering and technology systems experts that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She is strategically smart, extraordinarily disciplined and highly accountable. Farishta brings a unique engineering and problem solving strength to any business by being able to analyze, plan, articulate and deliver in a fast paced environment. Her ability to be flexible and honor strategic business initiatives while simultaneously managing the day-to-day necessities of supporting multiple technology systems, engineering business priorities and production and development resources is world class. I would always want Farishta's opinion on anything I do in business as I know that she would create a hypothesis, test it, analyze it and then present it back to me in a coherent way. Farishta has the smarts and experience to fly by the seat of her pants and she does; yet she also takes great care to methodically, analytically and quite poignantly bring to the table some of the greatest questions and concerns I have ever been the recipient of in my experience working with technology partners.
