I am a Master’s student at Carnegie Mellon University, specializing in computer systems, with a focus on analytical database systems and operating systems.

I graduated with a bachelor’s in mathematics and computer science from Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati iin 2020, where I conducted research on making neural networks more interpretable under the guidance of Prof. Shreemayee Bora.

Previously, I worked at Quadeye, a high-frequency trading firm, as a systems engineer developing low-latency systems for quant strategies. I also interned at Samsung Research, working on their AI neural accelerator platform for mobile devices.

In addition to my academic and professional pursuits, I am passionate about movies, board games, and technology. I am also a rookie trekker, looking forward to more adventures in the future.
