Thoughts on Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning

Bio and Interests


I’m an incoming Master’s student in Computer Science, specializing in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.

I grew up in Surat, India. After completing my high school, I pursued a Bachelor’s in Computer Science at Purdue Unviersity, graduating in December 2016. I went on to work as a Software Engineer at Braintree, helping build backend systems. Next, I worked as a Platform Engineer at a startup called Roam Analytics, where I helped build a robust platform for Machine Learning experiments and applications on Kubernetes.

Currently, I’m part of a distributed research organization called FOR.ai where I’m working on a couple of interesting Machine Learning research projects.

My present research interests include Bayesian Deep Learning, Probabilistic Machine Learning, Generative Models and Computer Vision.
