Hello there, netizen!

I am an experienced & versatile Software Engineer involved in hands-on development and problem solving in an agile environment since a long time. I'm passionate about technology and its impact on society at large.

I have professional work experience in full stack mobile and web development. Apart from that I have keen interest in the following domains: Cyber-physical systems (CPS)/IoT, distributed consensus/Blockchain, Software Defined Networking, AI, ML, Embedded Sensor Fusion, 3D printing, Augmented Reality.

I am currently pursuing MS in CS (Networking) @ University of Southern California.

You can find me at local hackathons in the physical realm or below handles in the virtual realm.

                    

Cheers
