About

I am a CS Graduate Student at USC, interested in Full Stack Development, distributed processing as well as Machine Learning roles. I have 2.5 years of work profile, where I focused to analyze, and build different aspects of web & iOS systems, involving ML models in the back end.

I have led teams through each stage of SDLC, and successfully delivered multiple projects to production, ensuring higher scalability, increased efficiency and better user experience. My contributions towards academic research and corporate are testimonies to the same.

I firmly believe in "Learn and Deliver" ideology, which keeps me grounded and eager for "attempting and acing" new ventures. Emphasizing on the principles I live by, I am open to solving any new challenges that interest me, preferably towards software development and machine learning.

Projects

  • Advanced Application for Social Media Analytics

    • Designed an application, conducting forensic analysis of data generated on online social networks.
      Implemented an async distributed-task queue, and real-time computation mechanism for processing unbounded streams of data, achieving scalability, & enhancing resilience to failure by 17.95%.
      Being currently used by 100+ state and federal government agencies and armed forces across India.
  • Real-World Object Detection and Occlusion in Augmented Reality

    • Designed iOS plugin to retrieve position & spatial orientation of real-world objects of any shape & size.
      Enhanced AR experience in iOS by allowing to occlude virtual entities behind real objects in 3D space.
      Currently (as of August 2019), iOS ARKit2 and ARKit3 do not have this functionality.
  • Comment Based Seller Trust Model for E-commerce

    • Designed reliable seller trust model to compute cumulative feedback rating (user-ratings + textual reviews) of local sellers registered on Indian e-commerce platforms: amazon.in & flipkart.com.
      Implemented supervised learning using linear SVM for sentiment classification of consumer reviews.
