My story starts with two ventures I built in my undergrad. The first one was an app. During my undergrad, we had a long queue in the university cafeteria. We were spending a lot of time waiting for our food. So I built an app that would allow students to pre-order food and collect the food in the cafeteria rather than wait in a queue. This gained traction and had more than 100 users.
The next thing I built was a desktop application that would take in the websites to be blocked for a specific time and deny access to the user for those websites for a specific time period. This helped people focus on work and avoid distractions.
After this, I started my master’s in computer science at the University of Leeds. For my thesis, I worked on regression models to predict the spatial navigational ability of people from different socioeconomic backgrounds.
My recent project was to get the news using API and perform sentiment analysis on the news article to get the sentiment on a particular stock. Currently, I’m working as a Data scientist trainee at Digital Futures.
