Ashwin Desikan

Senior Adtech Consultant at Amazon

London, England

I am a multidisciplinary data evangelist with more than 15 years experience in data analysis and a published record of technical expertise. I have a driving passion for the application of data to solve complex media, scientific, and governmental challenges.

My love for data and data science has allowed me the privilege of working in a variety of data-driven roles in San Diego, London, and New York. I currently work at Amazon, leading bespoke consultancy opportunities for clients of Amazon Advertising and AWS.

Prior to this, I led Marketing Measurement at Workpalce by Facebook, Insights and Analytics at Spotify, Data Science and Data Strategy at Digitas and GroupM, and was previously a Marketing Science Director/Business Intelligence Director/Product Owner within the agency and adtech startup world (Annalect, Adform, The Exchange Lab and VisualDNA) focused on data strategy.

I have previously worked as a senior data test engineer at Illumina, developing and analysing the company's key secondary sequencing analysis software packages in both the US and the UK. I was a Ph.D candidate in Computational Biology at Washington University in St. Louis, and received my BSc from the University of Pennsylvania in Bioengineering/Mathematics.

I have also volunteered with international organizations such as Eurostat (European Commission), and UEFA to perform statistical analysis and modeling on an as-needed basis.
