Hi, I'm Peter Brescia.
I'm a US-based software engineer with a specialization in data processing. I graduated with a Master's Degree in Physics from the University of Oxford.
Over the years I've had the opportunity to build some great systems, including:
- A generic feed builder and delivery system that powers the advertising campaigns of multiple large international hotel and travel chains across multiple channels.
- A comprehensive, end-to-end user tracking and sale attribution system for an ecommerce plugin.
- A distributed, neural-network-powered forecasting system written in Python, Julia, and TensorFlow, for optimizing ad campaign performance.
- And much more...
I'm fluent in full stack web development (Linux, Hack/PHP, JS, MySQL, etc.), as well as Julia, Python and AWS, I have some experience in performance-critical C++, and have dabbled in Microchip Assembler for the PIC 16-series.
I currently work at Facebook, where I build our Dynamic Ads for Travel platform.
I'm also the maintainer of jsonip.org
