About Me

I am currently pursuing Master's Degree in Computer Science from San Jose State University and I have an active interest in Salesforce. I believe that the rise of Human-Computer Interaction and Artificial Intelligence can change people's lives and make the world a better place. My idea of a "smart" gadget is one which does not make its user "dumb".

In between completing my assignments and other academic activities, I find time to play badminton and sketch as a hobby.
