I am an undergraduate at Indian Institute of Information Technology Kalyani, pursuing Bachelors in Computer Science and Engineering. My interest lies in code and languages that run behind the scenes powering web services and mobile apps, but I don’t mind implementing ML algorithms or creating client-side experiences (especially during Hackathons).
I am always on the lookout for my next hackathon adventure. I have participated in a number of national level hackathons including HACK-A-BIT, Smart India Hackathon, etc. My team ended up winning the 6th Prize at HACK-A-BIT 2018, where we created a news aggregator that utilised machine learning to mitigate effects of media bias.
I regularly contribute to open source softwares. I have contributed to SciPy, FOSSASIA, OrigamiJS, Processing DE, etc. I am founder and manager of FOSS Club of IIIT Kalyani, under the banner of which I have organised several college level events.
In the spare time, I like reading, listening to songs (especially to those by Ed Sheeran) on repeat, and watching my favourite show - Doctor Who, or my favourite youtube channel - Linus Tech Tips.
