I am an Associate Software Engineer on the CRM-CMC team at Veeva Systems. I graduated with a Masters of Engineering in Computer Science from Cornell Tech in May 2021. Prior to that, I received a Bachelors of Science in Computer Science from UC San Diego in June 2020. Apart from my education and work experience, I'm a professional kathakKathak is one of the eight major forms of Indian classical dance. The origin of Kathak is traditionally attributed to the traveling bards of ancient northern India known as Kathakars or storytellers. dancer of the Lucknow gharanaA system of linking musicians or dancers by lineage or apprenticeship, and by adherence to a particular musical style. and have practiced for over nine years under my guru, Vibha Ramaswami. My years of practice culminated into a final solo two-hour performance of eight different pieces. I have also received professional vocal training for over five years at TAAQademy in Bangalore, India, and performed in music videos and on other public platforms.

Tutoring Experience


Over the summer of 2018, I had the opportunity to work at ServiceNow in San Diego as a Quality Engineering Intern under my manager, Abelardo Hernandez.
                    Through the internship, I wrote basic scripts in JavaScript, built a small-scale weather application in Java, performed bi-weekly regression testing, wrote automated Selenium tests using ServiceNow's codebase and verified problem stories and fix targets.
                    ServiceNow also gave me the chance to network with professionals in the field while having an enjoyable summer. They encouraged social service activity through days of volunteering work and took us for a baseball game in San Diego. 
                    Due to my performance, my internship got extended beyond the summer into a part-time job through the fall quarter of my junior year. Though quality engineering is not within my area of interest in CS, I definitely learned a lot that summer and valued the opportunity given to me greatly.
Over the summer of 2019, I had the opportunity to work at Workday in Pleasantaon as an Software Applications Engineering Intern under my manager, Balasubramanian Kumar.
                    Workday uses their own proprietary language called XpressO (XO). Through the summer, I built various REST API's (namely, a POST and various GET calls) using XO and built a reference application to demonstrate the use of these API's. 
                    I also implemented various validations and error-checking on these REST API's to ensure the data being passed in was valid. At the end of the summer, my partner and I presented our work on a poster board in the form a science fair style session. 
                    We also created a demo video and held a knowledge sharing meeting for the developers who were to take up and fully implement the rest of our project. The internship was very memorable and well structured. I got to make many good friends, explore San Francisco through company-held outings and learn the day-to-day on how a large-scale tech company runs.
Since fall quarter of my sophomore year, I have served as a student instructor for the CSE department at UC San Diego. I have tutored for CSE 8A (Fall '17), CSE 8B (Winter '18) and CSE 100 (Spring '19) with Professor Yingjun Cao; I have tutored for CSE 8A (Winter '19), CSE 12 (Spring '18) and CSE 15L (Spring '18, Fall '18 & Winter '19) with Professor Gary Gillespie and I am tutoring for CSE 130 (Fall '19) with Professor Nadia Polikarpova.
                    My job as a tutor over these 7 quarters involved holding numerous tutor hours, proctoring both midterm and final exams, answering questions posted on the Q/A platform, grading weekly programming assignments and exams, writing testing scripts for automated grading and helping with other basic logistical work wherever I can.
                    Tutoring has been my opportunity to give back to the CSE department for all they helped me with when I first joined UC San Diego. I have learned what it takes to make a college class run and how much manpower it involves. This small insight into academia is informative of what a potential future in education might look like for me.
