About Me

I graduated from the Computer Science department at Stanford. I did research on porting some earth science applications onto GPUs, as a Teaching Assistant for Data Mining & Information Retrieval and Web Search courses, and as an intern at Yahoo working on PNUTS.

Back in India during my undergraduate studies at BITS Pilani, I interned at Bhabha Atomic Research Center, Indian Institute of Science and Hewlett Packard Labs.

I was at LinkedIn for 4+ years where I contributed to various systems (Voldemort, Kafka, Azkaban, Avatara, FollowFeed), data tools (XLNT) and data products for growth and engagement (PYMK). I moved onto Coursera where I helped start 2 new business lines and eventually was leading all efforts around growth and infrastructure. I'm now at Facebook helping out with some computer vision efforts.
