Srikanta Patra

Data Science Consultant and Instructor, General Assembly Sydney

Sydney

Srikanta Patra started his journey as a business application developer developing ERP's and process management software with SQL and Visual Basic before progressing onto Business Intelligence and Data warehousing in the fast-moving consumer goods space. For around 12 years, he worked for clients of Information Resources Inc., USA in various capacities, such as BI Implementation Manager, Technology Pre-sales Consultant, BI Modeler, and SQL Developer. With a passion for learning and teaching, he conducted various internal training programs and was also a part-time lecturer teaching knowledge management and database management at GEMS B School, India.

After moving from India to Sydney, Sri realised Data Science was his greatest passion, so he took one of the first instances of General Assembly's Data Science Immersive. During his course, Sri became known as "The Professor", a natural teacher and mentor for his peers. He subsequently joined General Assembly as a Local Instructor for the hybrid DSi+ program.

Nowadays, Sri is the Global Instructor for General Assembly's Data Science immersive between Sydney and Melbourne. He loves sharing his passion for data and machine learning, and leans heavily on his experiences before, during and after the program to walk students through the complexities of these subjects in a clear, enlightened way.

In recognition of his exemplary service in the classroom, Sri has been selected as a member of General Assembly's Distinguished Faculty program.
