About Me

Hi there! Welcome to my virtual home. This site is a simulacrum of my hippocampus, and a parentally approved peek into my life. I am a final year computer science and engineering undergrad, an ardent admirer of scientists, and a wary internet trekker. I have spent the last three (and possibly many more) years of my life reading and sharpening my brain in order to dauntlessly tackle the greatest evils of our day, namely: dismissive professors, judgmental peers, well-intentioned but poorly behaved relatives, and twitter antagonists.



Along the way I was fortunate enough to hit upon some things that I can proudly claim as my "passions", as all humans are expected to possess. Some of these are very gray matter oriented and sciencey, like artificial intelligence, computer vision, natural langauge processing and quantum computing. Some others are very popular yet cumbersome to my parents, like politics, poetry-writing and dystopian prophecies. They do approve of cooking though.



Before I get carried away and start unravelling in my own "about" section, this is just to say: I am an inquisitive and dedicated student. I have completed two research internships in my undergrad and am working to get them published currently. I am carving my path for a future in AI research.



I am open to any research internship/apprenticeship/assistant opportunities in machine learning/AI research. I am also open to full-time employment opportunities that require machine learning skills and experience in computer vision/natural language processing. Besides these, I am very interested in software development and can pick up skills quickly, and I am willing to dive deep into the requisite skills if the job provides the space to learn and grow as I learn.
