About

Hi there!

I am a student of Mathematics and Computer Science at Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur. I love to see abstract mathematical ideas being used in real-life applications which means I also like programming. In particular, my interest is in making systems learn from experience (yes, that's AI stuff!).

I regularly contribute to open source development. In 2015, I did my Google Summer of Code project in SymPy on series expansion and have mentored other students since.

Currently, I am interning with Prof. Maxim Likhachev at Search Based Planning Lab in Robotics Institute, Carnegie Mellon University.
