About me


I am currently employed with Samsung Research Institute India, Bangalore as a Senior Software Engineer. Here I am working on developing Tensorflow lite based Android applications

I have done my Masters (Research) in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, IIT Madras. I was associated to Distributed and Object Systems Lab; here I worked under the guidance of Dr. Dharanipragada Janakiram.

I love to learn new stuff; hence Computer science and engineering came as a natural career choice. I broadly work on Big data and Distributed systems. My area of research is "Load Balancing in Multi-tenant Distributed systems".

I obtained my B.tech in Information Technology from Heritage Institute of Technology, one of the premier private engineering colleges in Kolkata. Here is an interesting article on HIT. After graduating I worked for almost 2 and a half years at ITC Infotech India Ltd.


I hail from the city of joy, Kolkata. This city is full of life. And if you love delicious food, then there is no better place than Kolkata.

I love to make friends and like to travel to different places. This website is a small step to fulfil my desire of improving the quality of education in our country. I know its not easy, but its not impossible also.
