About Me

Hello Friend

I am a Data Scientist at Walmart Global Tech, based out of Dallas. I am a Masters graduate (Data Science track) from the School of Information, The University of Texas at Austin. I was a part of IDEAL and UT Computational and Imaging Lab there. Previously, I was a research assistant at CeNT working on machine learning and bioinformatics. I like working in natural language processing, predictive analytics and machine learning in general. I completed my masters thesis titled A GPU-accelerated MRI Sequence Simulator for Differentiable Optimization and Learning under the supervision of Dr. Jon Tamir.
