Do Epic Shit
About me
Interaction Designer, Data Scientist, Data Visualizer, a Maker at heart with a healthy disregard for the impossible. I love technology, books, sometimes people. Slightly elaborate, impatient, hyperactive; although I think these are good qualities most of the time.
There is a perpetual battle between the meticulous and the fast; most times I prefer fast.I have completed a Masters in Interaction Design(HCI) from the Industrial Design Centre at IIT Bombay and am currently working with the Artificial intelligence and research group at Microsoft R&D.
