I am a master's student in Computer Science and Engineering department at the University of California, Santa Cruz. I have received my Bachelors of Engineering from Ramdeobaba College of Engineering and Management, India in Computer Science and Engineering.

I enjoy going on long roadtrips and once went on for a 4,500 km roadtrip in Spain and Portugal. I am also enthusiastic about adventure activities like Scuba diving, sky diving, mountaineering, trekking, etc.

After a long week nothing can beat a board game night !!!
