    Before coming to CMU I was a dual degree student in Computer Science & Engineering at IIT Kharagpur, the oldest & the largest IIT in India. I have worked with Prof. Anoop Sarkar and Prof. Sebastian Pado as an internship student.

    I wish I spent lesser amount of time on social networking websites.
