Background

I'm currently an graduate student at UC San Diego, exploring Computer Vision and Computer Networks. I recently completed my undergraduate education from Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi after having co-founded my startup Pharmart and an awesome internship at Amazon. I breifly also worked at some really amazing problems at Rivigo.

As a software engineer, I enjoy applying my technical knowledge to solve challenging problems. I wish to technology as an enabler for a better lifestyle. My goal is to always build applications that are scalable and efficient under the hood while providing engaging, pixel-perfect user experiences.

When I'm not in front of a computer screen, I'm probably learning to surf, cruising around on my penny board, or exploring San Diego.
