WORK & EDUCATION
I graduated from the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign with a Bachelors Degree in Computer Engineering in May 2016. After college I worked as a Software Engineer at IBM TJ Watson Research Center in New York on the Cloud & Analytics team, and Nvidia in Santa Clara, California on the Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) Team. I am currently a graduate student at UC Santa Cruz with the Creative Coding Lab.
My primary areas of interest include Computer Vision, Signal Processing, and Machine Learning. Complementing my technical work and interests, I love any sort of art and design. While photography is a much more recent whim for me, drawing, painting, and writing have been longtime hobbies. My personal definition of travel ranges from a walk in a never visited park to hopping on a plane and exploring a different country, and I like to capture in my photos and artwork the personalities of the places I go.
Alongside my love for visual arts, I am also a dedicated dancer. I began my Odissi training in 2002, and have since studied and performed in the US and India with various dance troupes. I continue to train and perform throughout the country.
