Graduate Student at USC, Proud Trojan, fight on ✌️

Hi! I am a graduate student at the University of Southern California (USC) pursuing an MS in Computer Science.

I currently work as a Technical Lead at an AI Journaling Startup called Airy. I am also a Web Development Student Worker at USC Viterbi's Marketing and Communications Office.

Before moving to LA for my master's course, I worked with Optum (UnitedHealth Group) as a software engineer for about three years. I worked as a full-stack developer on a health insurance enrollment portal for providers in the US. I also had a chance to work on on-premise/cloud ETL data pipelines.

I am adept in technologies used for web development and data pipeline processing. On a broader view, I am proficient in the following domains-

 Testing Automation
 Continuous Deployment/Continuous Integration
 Client Feature Analysis and Solutioning
 Product & Code Documentation

I am interested in designing and developing systems that aim at solving real world problems!

Roller Coaster Ride Simulation - OpenGL

Built a roller coaster ride simulation using OpenGL, in C++ as part of the computer graphics course at USC - CSCI 420. The program takes a set of spline points as input, creates a curve. It uses Catmull-Rom splines along with OpenGL core profile shader-based lighting and texture mapping to create a roller coaster simulation.

MazeShift-Marauders - Unity - WebGL - Game Dev

MazeShift Marauders is a dynamic maze shifting game. The goal is simple, try to get out of the maze by reaching the destination. But that's not all, you can collect coins on the way and use them to destroy walls if you are stuck. Also, there are Dementors chasing you. Spooky, we know! Have fun playing it.

Recommending Reusing and Recycling DIY Ideas Using Object Recognition

The project aimed at leveraging object recognition using deep learning to recognize waste objects in the image and recommended the user, various ways in which that object could be re-used before discarding it. ResNet50 was used as the CNN architecture, and the model was trained using a customized dataset spanning over 14 classes for waste objects. The recommendation system was built using web scraping in python and Flask framework.
