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
Please do visit my blog
During my Masters at University of Pittsburgh, I worked on the following
As a part of my research project in the course I worked in developing a Domain Independent Text Classification tool for Natural Language Processing
In Data Science, I worked in data mining using Graph Search
Built a Map Reduce Systems from scratch for Inverted Indices using socket programming.
• (Grad) CS 2056: Data Science: Python based Neo4j graph-based database mining techniques.
• (Grad) CS 2710: Artificial Intelligence: Reinforcement Learning frog agent that plays the classic frogger game in Python
• (Grad) CS 2731: Natural Language Processing: Domain Independent Sentiment Classification support text classification agnostic to domain
Prior to my Masters, I worked as a Software Developer at Bank of merica for 3 years. During my time here I worked on the following:
Worked on migrating a legacy software system in C# on Microsoft Office used by Research Analysts at Bank of America Merrill Lynch onto a web app built in Angular. The software is an Authoring tool used by analysts to publish reports on stock market.
I also got great exposure to usage and implementations in Python. I have good understanding of libraries such as Numpy, Pandas, Sci-kit, Spacy, Flask and Django. Python is my first preference for learning anything new in computer science
working on ChatBots, Text Summarisation,NLP now.

A morning cup of coffee with me and you wouldn’t need to have one with anyone else again!
