I am a Master of Computational Data Science student at Carnegie Mellon University. My main research interests are Multimodal Deep Learning and Multimodal Question Answering. Broadly my work is at the intersection of Deep Learning, Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, Computer Vision, Artificial Intelligence, Multi-modal learning and Data Science (including Statistics).
I did my bachelors from National Institute of Technology, Hamirpur, India.
Used Apache Spark to streamline different predictive prototypes by gathering information from CMS, ran predictive models and proposed datasets which will become popular over time. Evaluated quality of individual models, performed component analysis and selected best predictive model for new set of data.

Created a Python command line toolkit using scikit-learn, numpy, pandas and matplotlib libraries to solve machine learning problems automatically. Imputation and hyper parameteric optimization placed my model among the top 10% of the Titanic kaggle.com challenge (Rank 198 out of 2035 in July 2014). Experimented with large data sets and deployed on Hadoop cluster over AWS.
