About Me

I'm a junior at the Georgia Institute of Technology, pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science. I am currently researching Differential Privacy. I mentor incoming freshmen, play badminton, learn the drums, hike and bike, kayak, explore Atlanta, and participate at Hackathons. I'm deeply interested in computer science theory, artificial intelligence, and server-side programming.

I enjoy writing guides(currently just one, a vim usage guide coming soon) on using and setting up dev-tools (they help me set up new machines faster). Feel free to check them out and contribute to them.

Experience

H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering

Research Assistant

Working with Dr. Rachel Cummings to verify results on Truthful Linear Regression.

University of Minnesota

Research Assistant

Created a data science based Linear and Tensor algebra language extension for C at the University of Minnesota for which I designed the syntax, semantics and features of the language extension. It was coded in C and Silver (an open-source functional language developed at the MELT Lab to create extensible languages). I also implemented efficient n-dimensional matrix and n-dimensional tensor operations. While adding documentation and tutorial guides for new users for the Silver project as a whole. Finally, I containerized dev-environment with Docker for hassle-free set-up, development and testing. Take a look at the Dockerfiles here.
