Myexposure to academic research started very early during my undergraduate studyat PESIT. My first project, “JFLAP extensions for Instructors and Students”,improved upon an earlier extension of specifying the correctness of automataconstruction problem programmatically. I collaborated with three of my peersand developed a simple and intuitive means to define correctness of automataconstruction problem. We co-authored a paper on this project which was acceptedat The 6th IEEE International Conference on Technology for Education.
In mysecond year, I worked on “Feature extraction from retinal images” at the Centerfor Computer Vision and Image Processing. As a group of four, we developed atool to extract features from retinal images. Our tool greatly reduced the timerequired by doctors to analyze retinal images. My passion for educationaltechnology led to the project Photocasting as my bachelor’s thesis project. Iteamed up with two of my peers to devise a novel technique that could reducethe cost of creating and sharing digital lecture notes by the Instructor.
Thisapplication, implemented on Android platform could be advantageous in terms ofsending digital lecture notes to rural areas through social media platform (eg.WhatsApp) as the size of the files used in Photocast was about 1% the size ofthe video lecture explaining same concept.We presented our work at The 24thInternational Conference on Computers in Education in 2016. I completed two music exams Praveshikaand Prarambhika from Akhila Bharatiya Gandharva Mahavidyalaya Mandal and am atrained Harmonium player.
I also interned at Intel Technology India Pvt. Ltd,Bangalore during which, I contributed to the Business Intelligence Team. Ienhanced features of User Interface screens for the Business Intelligence Appsusing Angular JS. Currently, I am working at the TescoBengaluru on the Retail Demand Forecasting team. I develop RESTful webservicesin Java using Dropwizard and Hibernate framework.
