Biography

Hello everyone. Welcome to my little webspace. Currently, I am based in warm and awesome Singapore. In mid 2019, I made a move (along with my wife) to Singapore from USA. I spent around 7 enjoyable years in USA before the move (first, in Pennsylvania followed by Silicon Valley, California). I work on Machine Learning. Someday, I hope to make computers understand all languages of the world. Other than work, I love to travel, sketch, hike and explore new dishes.
