I hail from Hyderabad, India. After finishing my undergraduate degree in computer science, realizing my passion for analytics and machine learning, I decided to pursue a postgraduate certificate program in Data Science at Insofe. After which I unfolded integrated interests by the idea of using data to help solve problems. This has in turn led me to pursue my masters at Dalhousie and also apply for DeepSense. Aside from this, I enjoy playing badminton and piano in my free time.

“I got to learn quite a bit about the challenges faced in the ocean sector and how with the right set of data and tools, machine learning can enhance the whole ecosystem with little to no human intervention. Not only is the ocean domain very vast which enables us to use a wide variety of techniques, but the skills learnt here can be applied across domain which is what I believe makes this field very appealing. In conclusion, I wish to contribute towards this sector where I aim to utilize my skills with data tools to help improve the overall sustainability of marine life.”
