Casey Stella

Principal Architect
I am a principal architect focusing on Data Science in the consulting organization at Hortonworks. In the past, I've worked as an architect and senior engineer at a healthcare informatics startup spun out of the Cleveland Clinic, as a developer at Oracle and as a Research Geophysicist in the Oil & Gas industry. Before that, I was a poor graduate student in Math at Texas A&M.

I primarily work with the Apache Hadoop software stack. I specialize in writing software and solving problems where there are either scalability concerns due to large amounts of traffic or large amounts of data. I have a particular passion for data science problems or any thing vaguely mathematical. As a Principal Architect focused on data science, I spend time with a variety of clients, large and small, mentoring and helping them use Hadoop to solve their problems.
