As a professional programmer with over 17 years of experience, I have a Master of Science degree in Electrical Engineering and a strong interest in Distributed Systems, Algorithms, Deep Learning, Performance, and Optimization. My journey as a programmer started during my school days with Logo software, continued with assembly, BASIC, and Pascal during high school, and concluded with interdisciplinary research as part of my M.S.
Currently, I am working on online education initiatives and have experience adapting to dynamic and versatile startup work environments. I am comfortable working with open problem assignments and operating in an intrapreneurial role. Additionally, I have built big data (Spark) and data science (TensorFlow) skills that overlap with my M.S. curriculum and programming work experience.
My thesis focused on a geographically distributed network of sensors synchronized with nanosecond precision, collecting data for a machine learning system to detect a cosmic event. I have extensive experience with Linux and C++ (familiar with C++14/17/20 features), and I enjoy exploring new languages and frameworks with the help of active developer communities, resourceful websites, public code repositories, and YouTube channels.
My interests span Deep Learning, Databases, Networking, Algorithms, Performance, Kubernetes, and Optimization.
