- Other Soft Dev
I joined IIT Delhi in 2014 as a CS undergrad. Since then my life has undergone some serious changes. A introvert nerd transitioned into an ambivert hedonist. Although the love for food and coffee remained the same or I would say, amplified. Facebook wastes a serious chunk of my free time(I need to do something about it -_-).
Got placed in DirectI during the campus placements at IIT Delhi on Decemeber 1 (or Day1 :D). I will be joining the Bangalore Office later this year.
I interned at Qualcomm, hyderabad in the summers of 2017. Worked in the Software Automation (QSWAT) team for 2 months and got a PPO offer but decided to reject it to participate in the campus placements.
Led a team of 8 interns to build a prototype to convert American Standard Sign Language(ASSL) to speech in real time. Made extensive use of Image Processing, Keras and Tensorflow, had a full day demo at Qualcomm and stood second.

Automated JIRA interface using Natural Language Processing to generate most relevant solutions. Used doc2vec, a deep learning model for text classification and vector space model of gensim to extract semantic meaning.
Apart from that, I worked with the WCF based services to do functional testing of the team's code base.
Research Area: Blockchains and Smart Contracts
We are working on an open ended research problem to devise a mechanism to substitute the useless computation in blockchains with useful out-sourceable computation. We are also looking at scalability issues in smart contracts.
