Hometown: Delhi, India

Majors: Mathematics and Computer Science

Activities and Societies:

In high school, I worked with multiple NGOs where I first realized the impact technology can have on the efficiency and reach of these small organizations.  I have since then wanted to explore the fascinating intersection of science and humanities.  I am a part of the Digital and Augmented Intelligence Lab at Cornell where I get to work on projects that improve the interaction between humans and AI.  I have through these projects further developed my interest in understanding the applications of such technology in the real world.  I am thus honored to be a part of the Milstein Program through which I get to research and understand better the ever-changing place of technology in industries of today.  Apart from academics, I love reading mystery novels, learning new languages and binge watching Gilmore Girls.
