My name is Hamid R. Bazoobandi. I am the co-founder and CEO of DipperX consultancy services. In DipperX, we believe in the power of Data and automation. We help our clients to leave outdated and legacy systems behind and embrace newer technologies that enable them to run more efficiently and outpace the market competition.

I am also a Ph.D. student in the computer science department of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. In my Ph.D., I perform research on stream reasoning over semantically annotated data under the supervision of Prof. Frank van Harmelen and Prof. Henri Bal. I have also been lucky enough to enjoy working closely with Dr. Jacopo Urbani in my research. If you want to know more about about my research, you can have a look at my publications.

Prior to my Ph.D., I followed a top Master program in Parallel and Distributed Computer System(PDCS) at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and graduated Cum Laude with a GPA 8.7!
