I'm a Computer Science student and a self-proclaimed psychologist. I percieve myself as an assembly of fat-muscle-bone-water on hardware level and bundle of impressions-sensations-emotions-thoughts-actions on software level. I'm made up of carbon (instead of silicon), have mind-brain-hormones (as opposed to OS-processor-current) and deploy physical-mental-emotional-psychological-spiritual 'resources' in reaction to various situations. I get to learn from experiences, hence, I'm programmable. I get to program software applications as well. I'm passionate about understanding human learning and relating it on computational basis.
I love to travel; click photos; listen to audiobooks; meditate; weight-train; talk about philosophy, psychology, health and nutrition, neuroscience, personal-finance, cosmology etc. This is my web space to reflect upon ideas and activities, hoping to reach to like-minded people.
I studied B.E. (Computer Science) from Manipal University, Karnataka, India; M.E. (Computer Science) from Thapar University, Punjab, India. I'm currently pursuing PhD (Computer Science) from IIT Roorkee, India with research interest in Affective Computing (Emotion AI). I've also worked at Oracle IDC, Hyderabad as a Software Engineer.
