Doctor of Philosophy in Computer Science • April 2021 - March 2024
I am researching mainly Automated Machine Learning (AutoML) and Information Visualization. I also have a keen interest in NLP, Data Science, and Web Development. My Ph.D. research will add up my knowledge to contribute to data science and machine learning to develop advanced information visualization techniques for multiple applications such as digital humanities, real-time tracking, intellectual property, etc.
Master of Philosophy in Computer Science• Aug 2015 - April 2017
In 2015, I was closely related to data science and machine learning during my master's of philosophy in computer science at Chaudhary Ranbir Singh University in India. I worked as a teaching assistant to sharpen my skills and took the hands-on experience in soft computing and MATLAB. In my post-graduation project, I took a bold step and considered deep neural networks for computer vision applications to include in my research. My master thesis was on "Japanese Historical Character Recognition using Deep Convolutional Neural Network (DCNN) with Drop Block Regularization."
Masters of Science in Computer Science • Aug 2013 - May 2015
I have studied various computer science concepts deeply in my Master's degree. To solve computational problems and design solution-based algorithms, I took hands-on sessions in Data Structure and Algorithms along with Discrete Mathematics, C, C++, Software Engineering, Database Management Systems, Computer Graphics, Computer Networks, and Artificial Intelligence.
Bachelors of Science in Computer Science• Aug 2010 - May 2013
I have studied Mathematics, Physics, and Computer Science subjects in my Bachelor's degree. To learn the basics of these subjects, I have to continually focus on different patterns of how these concepts are related to real life.
Ambassador/Founder at Tokyo Metropolitan University • Jan 2022 - Present
I was selected as Microsoft Learn Student Ambassador in January 2022. I am so fortunate that I was given this opportunity to learn and grow with this profound tech community spreading around the globe. I am responsible to joined a technical path and learning from Microsoft resources. To extend this knowledge, I need to organize technical events collaborating with other ambassadors and industry professionals.
Mentor• Dec 2021 - March 2022
I was selected as a mentor in the Technovation Girls Coding challenge. I guided junior high school and high school girls on how to develop a theme-based mobile application and deploy it within time and budget.
Ambassador• Sep 2021 - Present
When I was given this opportunity, I realized the potential of women in technical fields. We can't ignore that the women percentage in this industry is considerably less than men. We need more women to balance the ratio and encourage them by providing valuable resources.
GDSC Lead/Founder at Tokyo Metropolitan University • Aug 2021 - Present
I was selected as a GDSC Lead at Tokyo Metropolitan University in the 2021-2022 session. I was dealing with two major problems in my institution: a lack of technical knowledge as per the latest trends among students and the second is communication. My job is to approach the students by all possible methods and deliver the technical content so they can secure a career in the tech industry.
Product Supervisor Intern, Bio-Metric Devices and Applications • Mar 2016 - Sep 2016
I have handled the Bio-Metric data of multiple users for fingerprint identification in Government State Examination Centers. My job is to travel to each center, collect the data, process it, and securely deliver it.
Teaching Assistant, Soft-Computing and Matlab • Sep 2015 - Feb 2016
I have worked as a teaching assistant at C.R.S University under the guidance of Prof. Anumpan Bhatia and Prof. Harish Rohil. I taught Soft computing, where I mainly focused on Neural Networks, fuzzy logic, and genetic algorithm. Also, I had given programming classes in MATLAB.
