Hi there! For the last two years I have been the CTO of OneDome. OneDome is a London based technology company with a mission to change the way people buy homes. So far this journey has taught me a decent amount of heuristics and an arsenal of analytical tools. Most importantly, it has shaped a certain sense of measure, an intuition that makes you feel good when you think about the right choice and that causes a caution when you are about to slip up.

Previously I have worked at Palantir, where I contributed to several projects across the globe, interacting with world’s biggest commercial institutions. Before that I was the CTO and co-founder of a small proptechstartup. Prior to that I obtained an MSc in AI fromThe University of Edinburghand a BSc in Applied Mathematics fromBaku State University.

Naive Bias is where I share my learnings about engineering leadership, building platforms, managing remote teams, balancing engineering values, scaling marketplaces and more. As the name of this website suggests, you should expect my writing here to be subjective. Other than its literal meaning, "naive bias" is an allusion tomy favourite probabilistic classifier. I like it for its naiveness.

You can alsofollow me on Twitter, where I post and retweet about broader topics including the technologies that I work with, the products that I like using and the ideas that I find inspiring.

All the best,
