I am a software engineer at Microsoft in the Azure Compute team of the Cloud and Enterprise division. I graduated with a Master's degree in Computer Science at Columbia University. Previously, I graduated from the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay with an undergraduate degree in Computer Science and Engineering and a Management minor. The diverse range of courses I took in machine learning, natural language processing, cloud computing, software systems, economics, psychology, and business reflect my interests.
I believe that solutions based on a robust technological framework supplemented with a sustainable business model and an intuitive and delightful user experience can help tackle some of the toughest socio-cultural, economic, and environmental challenges we face today. I feel empowered in taking leadership roles at different levels, and have mentored students and colleagues in various capacities.
As an aspiring entrepreneur and a fiercely ambitious individual, I am constantly learning from the people I meet and the things I observe everyday.
Being a CS major, it is and will always be my first love. Cloud computing, networking and machine learning are some of my primary interests. I also took business, economics, and psychology courses during college as I sought to develop a more broad-minded outlook towards the world around us. Outside academia, I have quite a diverse range of interests. I do follow the technology industry a lot and many fascinating incidents have occurred which push the industry forward. Business, economics, and politics interest me as well and I keep myself informed of the various developments.
