I'm a software engineer at Google. My team provides machine learning infrastructure solutions to all those amazing and popular products that people love (YouTube, GMail, Google Lens,... the list goes on) - we make Google, well, Google.

I was a PhD student at Purdue but dropped out because research was really boring software engineering seemed more interesting to me. Although briefly, my research interests lay in Applied Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and Data Mining.

I love to fiddle with new technology, especially new software. I'm an anime-freak, a cat-lover, and I prefer coffee to tea.
My first language is memes but I'm equally (perhaps more) poficient in sarcasm and satire. I also speak Bangla and English.

Programming Languages & Tools









When not busy with work, I watch anime, read books, and cuddle with my cat (his name is Doraemon).
I like sightseeing and going on long drives alone.

I'm a hobbyist electrician, exceptionally skilled at taking things apart (although not as skilled at putting them back together). I've recently become keenly interested in building custom mechanical keyboards which is a useless hobby and does nothing but break my bank.
