I'm a staff decision scientist at Flipkart and work on all data science problems related to enhancing business metrics via the application of cutting-edge machine learning methods. Business problem domains I work on include pricing, selection, customer engagement, image intelligence, demand forecasting, return rate reduction or RTO, search intelligence, stochastic optimization, Fintech and credit default, natural language processing, employee tenure and attrition modeling, and automation. Research domains include genetic algorithms, genetic programming, information theory, and deep learning. Academically, I finished my PhD in Astrophysics from the University of Maryland, College Park and a B.Tech from IIT Madras. Prior to joining Flipkart, I worked as an associate strategist at Goldman Sachs, and as a machine learning quantitative researcher at a hedge-fund, ACR capital in New York. I've published in several journals and presented at several conferences all over the world.
