I am a hobbyist developer and a tinkerer.
For a brief while, I was in academia conducting research in Artificial Intelligence and computational linguistics where I obtained a BSc. in Computer Science (2008) and a PhD in Artificial Intelligence & Computational Linguistics (2011) from the Middlesex University, London.
I am currently the CTO at Zerodha—now the largest stock broker in India—in Bangalore where we work on interesting financial technology projects, and where I still program every day.
I take great interest and devote a lot of time to experimenting, tinkering, and developing little things for fun and joy. Some of my personal projects can be found here. I've also been sporadically growing my stamp collection since 1992.
Over the years, I have found myself leaning more and more towards absurdism, which has helped make sense of many, otherwise nonsensical, fundamental perplexions.
