I am a graduate student pursuing my Masters in Computer Science at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles. I am a driven and motivated person and I appreciate good design. I love programming and solving mathematical problems and puzzles. Besides these, I am a huge fan of Manchester United. I am currently involved in learning and exploring iOS programming in Swift, Machine Learning and rock-climbing. I am interested in learning more about Virtual Reality and Game development.
Taking an algorithmic approach to solve problems has been one of my strong traits. I try to utilize my free time on sites like Hackerrank, Google Code Jam and Project Euler, trying to come up with optimal algorithms for problems.
I have developed apps in both iOS and Android. The iOS app was a simple gesture-driven alarm app that presents the user with a great and clean interface. The Android can be used as an eBay search tool. I am currently learning Swift and I am keen on developing more mobile as well as smart watch apps.
I am very much interested in Artificial Intelligence and its applications. I took up a course on the Foundations of Artificial Intelligence which gave me an opportunity to program some classifiers in Python. I have also taken up a course in Natural Language Processing and I will try to implement the knowledge that I gained from my AI course towards NLP.
I am a big fan of design studies and I like to focus on making a product's design simple and effective. I also took up a course on Specifications and Design of User Interface Software and also developed a high-fidelity prototype for an iOS app. I have also extensively worked on creating and fixing website UIs.
Software Engineering is vital to create strong processes to develop great software and I have learnt this with experience. As I was part of a small team in a big organization, I understand the various roles and stages of software development and their relevance in making things work properly.

His passion for programming enables him to involve himself extensively in development of a solution from scratch. Furthermore, his systematic approach and attention to details helps him multi-task efficiently. In addition to his regular assignments, he invests time in the research and development of several Proofs of concepts, estimation of future projects and training his junior associates. He has built a great rapport with his onsite counterparts and our clients.
He is a keen observer of the world developments and he has a penchant for technology. In addition to being a well-behaved and an attentive student, he was very punctual when it came to turning in assignments and projects.
