In the summer of 2020, I worked at Web Information Systems Research Group at TU Delft under Prof. Alessandro Bozzon and Prof. Ujwal Gadiraju. Our project focused on the development of conversational agent to simulate behaviour change among students in response to the Coronavirus crisis while also using it to gather insightful data for crowd-computing tasks.

Young Tech Leader Fellow - Software Engineer

Airtel2017 - 2019

Joined as one of 14 engineering graduates from all over India for the Young Technical Leader Programme at the second largest mobile network in the World. Spearheaded the development of Google Assistant based Digital customer care from ground up (Industry first of its kind) which runs on smart speakers, connected cars, smart displays and other IoT devices. This was showcased at Google For India 2018 and launched pan-india in October 2018, amid coverage by leading press outlets. Our ultimate vision was to allow an uneducated farmer interact with Airtel services digitally using his voice with his native language on Google Assistant.

Android Engineer-Intern

Baatna 2016

Developed several features, improved UI considerably and performance enhancements for the Android app. A startup where I would like to work again, if given a chance.

Embedded Systems-Intern


Programming at the hardware level, learnt about memory constraints, performance issues and really got hold of why space and time optimization is needed if resources are crux.
