I'm going to paraphrase Thoreau here : Rather than love, than money, than fame, than fairness, than faith, give me truth.
They call me an engineer by the formal records and documents, but I have explored and taken thorough interest in numerous verticals and I feel more and more equipped to handle the everyday challenges in life, for today and tomorrow. Western Music, Theatre, Medicine, Anatomy, Psychology, Philanthropy, Economics and Polity, Management, Literature, and Cars; I indulge in these whenever I get time from my technical witchcraft-y projects and hangouts with my loved ones.
Solely driven by the positive energy of the world, I try to utilize every bit of it into creating something meaningful and helpful for everyone. Inclusion, collaboration and teamwork is something I whole heartedly enjoy, encourage and promote whenever I have leadership roles. Managing, leading, and helping fellow colleagues and juniors gives me a sense of responsibilty which I always strive to fulfill sincerely.
Languages Used : OpenCV (C++)
Built a hardware prototype on Raspberry Pi to process input visual feed from a web cam to detect oncoming high beam and generate a trigger. Applied my knowledge of Linux, various image processing algorithms, and optimization in C++.
Built a prototype on Raspberry Pi to map a parking lot and detect filled/vacant spots using IR sensors. This data was served through a Node.js server instance on Pi itself with real-time visualisation support using WebSockets.
Built my personal website from scratch, and named it Zirve. Wrote custom effects, and used BootStrap with Materialize for layout and widgets. Supports a simple Markdown parser to serve blog posts.
Developed boilerplate code for an Installable Sails Hook. Uses postinstall scripts to setup the new package and organise the code neatly into a good directory structure.
MARKS is an acronym for Most Amazing Resource of Knowledge for Students. It was built for juniors to help them find all the necessary material to help them in academics. It had amazing animations written in Greensock (GSAP) and custom CSS.
This was my first static website, completely built from scratch. It included a static blog where I wrote some of my new learnings in the field of web designing, along with general articles. Used custom CSS for effects, and added Konami Code Easter Egg as well.
IEEE Delhi Section
Responsible for managing and coordinating all the events, activities, and initiatives at the Delhi Section (consisting of over 40 colleges), aiming to help the IEEE Student Members develop holistically through the benefits which IEEE can provide.
Project WIE Stand
Closely mentored the operations of Project WIE Stand, and initiative which is similar to “Google Summer of Code” or “Outreachy” but runs over 6 months instead. It is aimed to empower young women by promoting them to pursue and lead technical projects of their interest.
Evangelized the various Special Interest Groups of IEEE DTU to increase its reach to other colleges. The key was to motivate these branches to attend the SIGs so that they learn about the subject, as well as become more able to host a similar event in their own college.
The Processing Foundation
Open Genome Informatics
Worked on JBrowse with mentors from UCLA. Developed a Sails.js Installable Hook which could manage and clone GitHub repositories of synthetic chromosome sequences.
Worked in a startup as an intern in restructuring the website SwiftIntern.com. Improved the entire UI with custom CSS effects and BootStrap.
I'm based in New Delhi, India.
