About Me

I have joined Databricks, Mountain View as a Software Engineer after finishing my Masters of Science in Computer Science degree from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I finished my thesis under the guidance of Prof. Yongjoo Park in the area of online aggregation for deeply nested queries. During my masters, I interned at Meta, Menlo Park where I worked on tools to help debug entropy explosion in ranking models. Prior to this, I worked at Adobe Research, India as a Research Associate where my work primarily lay in the intersection of Systems and Machine Learning trying to find ways for data-driven system optimization. I also interned at Adobe Research during the Summer of 2017 where I worked on Deconstructing and Denominating Customer Experience using Clickstream-data. Before Adobe, I completed my B.Tech in Computer Science and Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee. My B.Tech project was on Distributed Storage network with Smart-contract incentivisation. My research interests includes Systems and Machine Learning.
