When I was a kid, I was intrigued by airplanes and what makes them fly. Later, I developed a passion for computers and all the incredible things that they can do, and that fascinated me even more than aeronautical engineering. I was motivated to take computer science as my major in high school and complete my master’s in computational sciences. With my knowledge of computer science and an interest in mathematics, I was encouraged to explore the world of analytics.
I was a complete novice when I started my first job at BRIDGEi2i. I used to get a lot of silly doubts, but the organization was such a flat structure that I could ask for clarifications from anyone on the floor and, amazingly, no one hesitated to guide me. This really lifted my spirit. As a part of the engineering team, I have been exposed to several new imminent technologies. I learn something new every day, which is always fun, and when you are able to develop something big with what you learned, it is a true feat.
Be it a new technology to learn or a crazy trip, my mantra is, “Never say ‘no’ to adventure.” I have a long bucket list of things to complete, covering the La Tomatina festival, bungee jumping in Queenstown, the Swing at the End of the World in Ecuador, and many more. And I do think that I can complete everything on it. My other passion is food. I may look skinny, but when it comes to food, I’m a hunter, constantly searching for new restaurants in town.
