Once upon a time, I wondered what computers could do. More specifically, what I could do, given a computer. Since I embarked on this journey, I have conceived, iterated and finally materialized many useful personal projects.
Most recently, I developed a predictive SIR model for COVID-19 spread for an Indian state. I solved a number of sets of differential equations and plot the curves. I used Euler’s method by hand and with computational programs. I also applied the Runge-Kutta method in R language. I ran inferences that show the spread of infection using that mathematical model.
Professionally, I contributed to the machine learning aspects of Alexa AI in my employ under Amazon.
I have extensive experience in designing architectures of state of the art Machine Learning models for a variety of problems and communicating technical results in clear and accessible ways. I believe we are just beginning to witness the profound impacts Artificial Intelligence will have on everyday life and am excited to be a part of the field.
I envision technology that brings people closer to nature. I like to make sure that all the time spent in front of a screen is meaningful and deliberate, ‘Time well spent’ !
- Minimising ecological footprints
- Reducing screen requirements
- Making technology more accessible
My bucket list at: Goals page
And HOW will we change the world
- Raise awareness
- Goals and being stakeholders for each other

Putting my money where my mouth is…
Guys underprivileged children need our support in this crisis. It’s just ₹500 to 750/month now and we will be helping through UNICEF itself. It is the need of this hour and there is no lock period. Please feel free to help and revert back if you are interested. Thanks.😊Karishma: +919930270674
I don’t have a photo for this, but when I donated a certain generous sum of money to a homeless woman trying to sell toys for her family at the beach, no camera could have captured her smile. “EDITH (Even dead, I’m the hero)” twinkled the star of my grandfather on his birthdate. I didn’t know her language so I don’t know what she said in response, but it was clear that she and her daughters were grateful for the kind gesture. I will never forget this moment, ever.
To every free software I have ever used (that I can recall).
