About Me

I'm a computer science and technology enthusiast with an inclination towards academic research. I love to learn new technologies and develop systems & tools that users can use. Broadly, my areas of interest include social computing systems, applications of machine learning and applied research in online social media. I am interested in projects related to both research and development as long as they offer an opportunity to learn and grow.

I graduated with my Bachelors in Information Technology in May, 2016 from NSIT, Delhi University. Since graduating, I have been a part of the PreCog Research Group at IIIT-Delhi , a group of researchers who study, analyze, and build different aspects of social media, led by Prof. Ponnurangam Kumaraguru.

I go by the psuedoname 'jigsaw2212' on various developer and coding platforms.
