About Me

I am a talented, hard working and dedicated individual with a strong urge to learn and apply my knowledge wherever required. I am also a hard working and dedicated individual with a strong urge to learn. I love to work in a team environment, collaborating with my peers to come up with new innovative ideas.

I have been a graduate student in the Computer Science department from August 2018. Thanks to my curriculum in both undergraduate and graduate, I am well-versed with the core concepts of computer science such as data structures, algorithms and object-oriented programming. Currently, at RIT, the cluster that I am focusing on is Big Data and so, I have experience with databases such as MySQl, MongoDB, AWS DynamoDB and PostgreSQL. I am also a certified Cloud Practitioner with self-experience in hosting NodeJs applications on the cloud.

I am looking for opportunities to showcase my skills and be an asset to the organization in the fiels of Data Science and Software Engineering. I can also prove myself as a Web Developer, back-end engineer or a full-stack developer.

I am confident that with my knowledge and personality, I can bring a mutually rewarding experience to any organization.
