about me

i follow imprints in the sand.

imprints that have been pulsating within me, my desire.

a poet at heart, a mathematician by hand.

i wake to my world of passion by methodical fire,

i wake...

i am a person who truly believes in better today than yesterday; progressing myself incrementally each day - be it academically, behaviorally, or just walking an extra 1000 steps. i believe in pushing my limits and re-discovering what i can handle. this is the sole reason that led me to find quantum computing as my passion. something that is the culmination of my interests in computers, mathematics, poetry, and natural sciences. today the imprints of these qubits leads me to have found and continue to follow my carved path and on this journey...

...i wake.

professional experience

Student Researcher, Sabre Kais QIQC Group

August 2021 - August 2022

as a student researcher under Dr Sabre Kais at Purdue University, i worked on developing a better exposure to research in quantum information and quantum computing.

i was mentored by Dr Manas Sajjan and collaborated with him on testing the noise resilience Dr Sajjan's modified restricted-Boltzmann machine. we are currently working with IBM to further explore the noise resilience in applying dynamic coupling.

i was also involved with applications of quantum machine learning in quantum finance and lead a collaboration with the Gowher Group of Bioinformatics to explore quantum epigenetics.

Member, The Data Mine

August 2021 - December 2021

i was a member of The Data Mine at Purdue University and worked on understanding applications of data science in bioinformatics, specifically its usage in visualizing biological results.

Founder, VSSM Incubator

September 2019 - March 2020

i developed an incubator at VSSM which serves to empower the tribal women under the care of VSSM. this incubator serves as a platform to allow the women to develop and run micro-enterprises. the first group of 50 women i worked were introduced to making and selling hand-made glycerin soaps - in collaboration with the National Institute of Design.
