Hey!

I am a product engineer at at Sundial, a sequoia-backed early stage startup building a data story telling product. Very excited to understand the big picture of the product development cycle! I graduated from BITS Pilani in Computer Science and Physics in 2021.

I have been fortunate to have various opportunities to explore in my undergrad. With my internships at Google, where I worked on multimodal-information extraction, and at Microsoft Research where I worked on building a logical NLI dataset, I have developed a keen interest in the field of Artificial Intelligence. I am particularly interested in the aspects of explainability, interpretability and ethics. I am also excited about other emerging technologies like quantum computing and analog computing. On that front I have worked in my final semester at Dr. Franco Nori’s Lab at RIKEN.

Please reach out to me if you’d like to chat with me!
