During the day I'm a Data Scientist in the making and rest of the time I work on my pet software projects. I am currently pursuing my PhD in Computer Science from North Carolina State University. Before my PhD, I finished my Masters at NC State, did an internship at facebook in 2015 and worked as a Full Stack Software Engineer at CrowdChat. My prime areas of interest are Machine Learning, Algorithms and Web Development. I go for treks when I get a long weekend and I am a massive foodie.
PhD in Computer Science• May 2016 - May 2019
I work with Dr Tim Menzies on software engineering problems.
I work on estimating software effort, optimizing
requirements engineering problems and
analyzing trends in software engineering publications.
I am also the teaching assistant for Model Based Automated Software Engineering and I think my students like me :P.
Masters in Computer Science • August 2014 - May 2016
Part of the AI4SE lab which works on applying Artificial Intelligence techniques on Software Engineering. I am also an active part of the BIGState club where we come up with Machine Learning solutions to different real world problems. I had a summer internship at facebook in 2015. I was funded by NASA for my masters for my work on estimating software effort for their space programs. I graduated with a GPA of 4.0/4.0.
B.Tech in Electronics & Instrumentation • July 2008 - May 2012
Graduated with a university silver medal. Topped my department with a GPA of 3.95/4. Apart from working on Electronics and Instrumentation, I also worked on projects in Image processing and Pattern Recognition using Machine Learning approaches. I also developed a 8086 microcontroller based basic home automation system in my junior year. Our senior year project of a digital sphygmomanometer was adjudged as one of the best for the academic year.

What's cooking in Software Engineering?
Its not that hard. Or is it?
Whats the cost?
region.io is an online bookmark manager that helps a user save all his favourite webpages, videos and PDF documents and create neat little widgets for him to comeback and view later. It is built on a Node.js and mongoDB stack. The front end templating is done on jade. Full text search is provided using elasticSearch. I've even built a google chrome extension to help the user store bookmarks in a single click.
We developed a Bayesian based sentiment analyser on twitter feeds. We used the stanford parser to tokenize the words. We used Map-Reduce to aggregate our business logic. We experimented on different preprocessing techniques like stemming and handling emoticons using regular expressions.
We developed an automated Digital Sphygmomanometer for our senior project requirement. It was built using 4th order non inverting filters to measure it and the blood pressure calculator was built on an 8086 microcontroller chip. We obtained a 95% accuracy.
