I'm Tarek Rached. I like to build things, and to use numbers to create pictures of the material world. My life's work is to help build a more sustainable planet through green energy, engineering for sustainability, and information visualization.
Currently, I am a part of the analytics team at DataRaker. We provide utility companies that have deployed advanced metering with analytic services, so that they can make full use of the energy data that they now have access to. I build tools and processes that enable our analysts to get a handle on a firehose of data from tens of millions of smart meters across North America.
I grew up moving between Washington D.C., Lebanon, and France. My work is inspired by the possibilities of using technology as a tool to understand our world more completely.
