PhD Student, Intelligent Systems Program, University of Pittsburgh

Welcome to the Matrix.

Glad you took the Red Pill. I am a Software Developer by Day. A Python/JS hacker by Night.

I am currently a PhD student in the Intelligent Systems Program at the University of Pittsburgh , into Natural Language Processing and Applied Artificial Intelligence in Education. I really like writing code that makes sense, modular and can be debugged easily. In my spare time, I like developing algorithms that are efficient and robust.

I have a Bachelors in Computer Science and Engineering from IIT Hyderabad, and a Masters in Computer Science from University of Pittsburgh
