Developer / Tinkerer / Researcher / Philatelist / Absurdist

I am a developer, researcher, and a consultant. My research areas include artificial intelligence, natural language processing, and computational linguistics. I obtained a BSc. in Computer Science in 2008 and a PhD in Artificial Intelligence & Computational Linguistics in 2011 from the Middlesex University, London, where I also hold a research fellowship. I currently head technology at Zerodha and Rainmatter, where we're working on interesting financial technology projects.

I take great interest and devote a lot of time to experimenting, tinkering, and developing little things for the joy of it. 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 questions.
