I am a computer engineering student from Mumbai, India. I’m a technology enthusiast who loves digging deep into various aspects of computer science.
I started contributing to Linux kernel about a few years back and interned with Linux kernel, mentored by Jonathan Corbet. If you wish to read about my project CLICK HERE
I recently resigned from Credit Suisse, India to pursue M.S in Computer Science at Stony Brook University, New York.
