I'm a 22 year old sofware engineer working at Meta with over 8 years of experience in developing full stack applications. In my free time, I enjoy attending hackathons, watching sci-fi movies, playing table tennis, and keeping up with advancements in deep learning.
I love working on interesting ideas. If you have one, feel free to contact me.


Machine Learning Engineer

Working on building highly reliable and efficient frameworks for model training and serving. These frameworks are built for rapid prototyping to be used at extreme scale for products such as Instagram Reels and Facebook In-Feed Recommendations.

August 2022 - Present

Deep Learning Researcher

Worked on analyzing clinical brain images and developing a deep learning model for segmenting arteries in the neck. The final model sped up the task of segmentation by two orders of magnitude and achieved a dice score of 93%.

June 2021 - August 2021

Research Work Trainee

Took part in the Compact Muon Solenoid Collaboration as a trainee and attended lectures conducted by physicists working on the LHC(Large Hadron Collider) to better understand the functioning of particle accelerators.

Quick Evacuation Service

An application that eliminates the need for human communication to synchronize information between evacuation points during an emergency by maintaining a central database that automatically combines data from single evacuation points. This approximately halves the time taken to understand and analyse the success of an evacuation. Qvac also helps in Search, Rescue and First Aid operations by helping users identify missing people much more quickly and fetching their medical information from BeSafe(a different project, the details of which you can find below). This helps provide tailored medical assistance to evacuees.



Interactive Mentoring

An online mentoring service that can help people in any field. Originally this was aimed at students in the college application process. Alum would provide these students with experienced mentors who could help with various things including feedback on essays. All this would cost a fraction of what it costs to hire a professional college counsellor.
Alum was made by a team of 5 at AngelHacks 2018. I developed the iOS application and helped with the Android application.

Waste Management

An app that incentivises fitness and recycling in India. Terra measures fitness activities of individuals and rewards them through a gamified system with a leaderboard. For every milestone achieved, an “intelligent” recycling bin that detects waste types for segregation is placed in a neighborhood of choice. This was built by a team of 5 at an MIT LaunchX event. I developed the API for the application in PHP. Here are the videos on the apple watch application and the web application.

Active Radiation Monitor

Measures a healthy dose of radiation by actively keeping count of changing light intensity. For people who don't like sunscreen.


Blood Sugar Recorder

Self Care

One page PHP blood sugar value recorder.



Digital Medical Recording and Awareness Service

Designed and coded the Android, iOS, and Web Applications for BeSafe, including the API. BeSafe is a platform that connects students, teachers, school staff and parents by a common need for easy access to medical data, while maintaining a dynamic medical database and an informative Disaster Management Blog that contains useful information and videos on the best practices for surviving a calamity. The medical database is constantly updated with every visit a student makes to the local medical department, and with every visit, the parents/legal guardians of the student are notified through the BeSafe iOS and Android applications with the details of the medical visit. This updation is made very easy through an intuitive user-interface that allows nurses to update the medical database within a few seconds. Once the database is updated, the parents/guardians are automatically notified through an API request.
I received the Innovator of the Year award for coming up with, and developing this project.

2016 - 2017


School Announcements Blog

Developed the Android and iOS applications for the school's online announcements page. Both the applications have a custom design and populate the view through data obtained from the API. Timely notifications are provided by these apps that keep students and teachers up to date with the school's happenings.

2016 - 2017


Travel Social Network

A platform that connects fellow travellers and gives them direct access to related information and past experiences. This was built by a team of 5. I designed and coded the API in PHP and helped develop the android application. The project was awarded the 3rd Prize at ShriTeq 2016.



Building in Virtual Reality

A platform that allows users to build virtual reality experiences. CraftVR’s toolkit makes it easy to design buildings, houses, cars, and product blueprints in Virtual Reality. This was built by a team of 4 at MinetX 2016 and received the second prize. I helped build the website. Here's the CraftVR video made by Kabir Oberai. There's also a small VR demo.


Automatic Night Switch

Electronic Smart Sensor

Made a small circuit that helps conserve electricity by automatically disabling power flow. This project was awarded the second prize at ShriKhoj 2016.
