For instance in his first full time position at IBM, Joseph tackled Semiconductor transistor scaling beyond Moore’s law in 2011. After that, it was migrating and supporting workloads on IBM cloud’s docker / kubernetes service in 2015. And then, there was using Watson to quickly respond to Sev1 events as well as transforming legacy business processes within the CIO in 2017.
