About Me

I am a graduate student, pursuing MS in Computational Linguistics at the University of Washington. My broad areas of interests include natural language processing, machine learning and data science.

I graduated from BITS Pilani in Computer Science and Mathematics in 2020. Previously, I have had the opportunity to work at Avnio, Samsung RnD and, IMS Lab at University of Stuttgart.

I am currently exploring internship and full-time opportunities starting Summer 2022 for the profiles of ML/NLP Engineer, Data Scientist and Software Engineer. If you find my profile relevant, feel free to leave a message here or contact me at one of my social handles.
