I am currently a Master's student at the Language Technologies Institute, School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University, where I am advised by Alan Black. I work on Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing. I am deeply passionate about building intelligent systems that blur the line between reality and fiction.

I was an Applied Scientist Intern at Microsoft where I designed an NLP system that automatically generates self help documents for customer problems.

Previously, I was an engineer on the ML & Data Analytics Team at Citrix R&D where I got to do a deep dive into ideating and building multiple products from the ground up.

I graduated 🎓 as the Best Outgoing Student from the R.V College of Engineering in 2017 with a B.E. (First Class) in Computer Science Engineering. Previously interned at Goldman Sachs, Indian Academy of Sciences and Zomato.

Tech enthusiast and an avid debater. In my free time I am out running 🏃🏽, keeping an eye on geo-politics 🌏 and pitching eccentric ideas 💡 to my friends.
