Junior Undergraduate @ CSE, IIT Delhi
Reliance Foundation Scholar
About
I'm a Junior Undergraduate in the Computer Science and Engineering Department at IIT Delhi, as well as a Reliance Foundation Scholar in Artificial Intelligence and Computer Sciences. Prior to this, I was a student at The Bishop's School, Pune.

Being an undergraduate, I have the luxury to explore and change my academic interests from semester to semester, and from course to course :P At the moment, I'm interested in Neuroimaging and Algorithmic Game Theory, with a bit of Computational Social Choice. I'm currently advised by Prof. Rahul Garg, and am working towards the Summer Undergraduate Research Award.

Apart from this, I've been a volunteer teacher for NSS, an Academic Mentor for MTL100, a runner-up in Mimamsa 2021, a journalist at the Board for Student Publications, a Representative for the Quizzing Club and a convenor of the Debating Society (albeit for a very short time).

End to end interactive quizzing platform
Created a game show themed interactive quiz with an integrated live scoreboard and interactive pounce and bounce via ErnoBot, to host the first League quiz of the 2021-22 quizzing season in IIT Delhi
Find the optimum IIT and department for your JEE rank, based on previous JoSAA seat allocations
IIT Dep Finder received over 1000 pageviews in October 2021, after the JEE(A) results for 2021 were announced.

Quizzing at IIT Delhi
Here are some links to sets that I've (co)hosted/conducted. Will be updated as I host more sets.
October 2021
The first league quiz of the 2021-22 Season: Prelims are a standard slideshow, whereas finals are the rendered slides from the final run of the program (as such, they have two tiebreaker questions in orange and red)
January 2022
The usual pounce/bounce introduction to quizzing, complete with google traps. The initial setup/team asssignment/rule explanation took around an hour, after which the other questions (mostly taken from entropy) were run for people who stayed late
Entropy was the first quiz I conducted after entering IITD, and the only fresher-hosted quiz in that year. We planned to host a prelims as well, but didn't make it in time. Was a great experience, even though we hosted it online.
Other Stuff
Some useful browser plugins to make the online sem easier: Moodle Sidebar Plugin, Impartus Ad Blocker, Impartus Participant Stats, Moodle Captcha Solver
