About Me

Computers held a great fascination for me during my childhood. As a child, I was led to believe that there was a magic behind the computer games, quick calculations, and word processing. Of course, I soon realized that the truth was far less magical, and there were codes and algorithms based on logic behind the games and calculation.

Despite this knowledge, computer science did not lose its fascination and the image of logical codes and algorithms still remains.

I knew my hunger for more knowledge will be satiated only when I've learnt all there is to learn about computer science. So I went to USC to pursure my masters in computer science and graduated in May 2016.
