Muhammad Osama

Hi, I'm a software engineer and data scientist currently based in Toronto.

I'm working at Wattpad, helping create a global storytelling community by contributing to a variety of teams and software stacks. I work to maintain and improve our general and personalized discovery (and related ML & NLP) algorithms and experiences as a member of the Content Discovery team. I also help in designing, implementing, and maintaining the code used in our core mobile apps for Android and iOS.

Outside of work, I'm interested in the rapidly growing area of unsupervised machine translation (i.e. translation without paired samples). I also play a lot of video games.

You can catch me on GitHub, AngelList, LinkedIn, Steam, or via email.
