I am a 4th year undergraduate student studying Mathematics and Scientific Computing at IIT Kanpur. My research interests include Algorithms, Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing. I want to use my knowledge in solving real world problems and contribute to the technical projects that impact millions of users experience. My industry experience includes internship at Yahoo! in the Advertising & Data Platform team, research exposure includes research grant by IIT Kanpur, sponsored visit to National University of Singapore and project with faculties from Carnegie Mellon University, USA. I like to solve problems on TopCoder in free time.

“Marissa Mayer, CEO of Yahoo!, is an inspiration for me. The progress that company is making since she took over a year ago is incredible and this is definitely a motivation for women that they “don’t need beard to be in the field of computing.”
