About Myself


Hi,

I am a self-taught programmer who started programming in low-level languages to execute projects around Arduino & Atmel microcontrollers. It was then when I discovered my passion for coding. On my way I had an epiphany that control and perception are challenging things in Artificial Intelligence - this lead me to Machine Learning. I have been working on a variety of problems in the areas of Machine Learning. As a passionate Machine Learning Engineer, I like to explore the jungle of data. My survival arsenal contains: Python, Pandas, Numpy, Scipy, Matplotlib and Scikit-learn.

When I am not sitting in front of a computer, I enjoy volunteering at Janwaar Castle where I learn skateboarding from Janwaar kids.

Volunteer

Janwaar Castle

Janwaar Castle is India’s First Rural Skateboarding Park in Janwaar, Madhya Pradesh. I help kids by repairing skateboards, install educational apps in the crowd-funded tablets for interactive learning, supporting them in their needs when they come to a city. And looking forward to contributing to Rural Maker Space.
