I am a graduate student and research assistant at the Department of CS at Purdue University - West Lafayette. My research interests lie in Applied Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and Data Mining.

I love to tweak around with new technology, especially new software. I am an anime-freak, a cat-lover, and I believe that the Earth is round.

Programming Languages & Tools









When I am not busy with research, I watch anime, read books, and tease my cat (his name is Toy). I am a hobbyist electrtian, exceptionally skilled at taking things apart (although not as skilled at putting them back together). I enjoy developing utility Android apps for my own use.

I have a natural talent for understanding memes and also for the art of creating them (I think). I particularly like sarcastic people. I am not that sociable with strangers. But when with friends (I have few), I can do some crazy stuff.
