I am a CSE undergrad at IIIT Hyderabad, and my primary area of research is human computer interaction and financial decision making. I have worked on projects in machine learning, human computer interaction, AR/VR, big data analysis, software design and engineering – with a keen interest in engineering usability. I strongly believe that technology needs to be intuitively usable to empower people and I love creating products and models built around this core philosophy.
