  Research Intern | Spring 2019

  Research Intern (Senior Thesis) | Fall 2018
Working on real-time obstacle avoidance and doorway navigation using a monocular camera on a low-computational robot like Anki Cozmo.

  Research Intern | Summer 2018
Worked on Task-based Information Retrieval, specifically on recommendation by leveraging external on-tology. Used the principles of Bayesian Rose Trees and Distance Dependent Chinese Restaurant Process todesign a dynamically enriched ontology. Worked on several research ideas documented at: UserContext.

  Google Summer of Code (Julia) | Summer 2018
Added data repository support to DataDepsGenerators.jl, which in turn creates registration blocks forDataDeps.jl. DataDeps.jl helps in downloading scientific data with ease. Talk on this work delivered at PyData New York City 2018.

  Google Summer of Code (Bugzilla) | Summer 2017
Revamped the existing bug filing interface (enter_bug.cgi) into a single page reducing the multi-hop dbaccess and unnecessary template rendering. This enhanced the speed and performance in bug filing
