A self-learner and self-motivator, I like to keep myself engaged and updated by working on a variety of projects. I think its my ability to see the big picture as well as obsess over the minute details that makes me capable of working in areas of all types.

Project Intern

I was chosen as the Team Lead of a team of four interns to work on a web application that involved Sentiment Analysis of Investor Sentiment on specific stocks in the Indian Stock Market (NSE). Tasks included scraping data from various stock forums, processing the data using natural language processing tools and building a machine learning algorithm for classification. I worked in Python and handled cases of negation, abbreviations, feature extraction and was responsible for increasing the accuracy of the classifier by 5%. I also programmed in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP and MySQL to develop a dynamic dashboard website which displayed our analysis of investor sentiment.

Directed Research in Software Engineering, USC

Software Tester and Developer

I worked under Prof. Doug Rosenberg on a Bad Driver Reporting application which is a completely hands-free Dash Cam App that lets users record from their phone a bad driving incident while driving. Users can then upload the video to our database using voice commands. The database access would be then given to Insurance companies. I worked on the project right from the start and was responsible for complete testing of the application. I also developed an Angular web page. More information here.
