Hello! This blog is part of the series of blogs I am writing during my Outreachy 2020 summer internship with Intermine Boot project in the Intermine Organization.
In this blog, I reflect on my academic journey so far and what I would like to do after the Outreachy internship ends.
I have done my schooling in Rajasthan, India. After appearing for RPET (Rajasthan Pre Engineering Test), a popular entrance exam for engineering college admissions in Rajasthan, I got admitted in Information Technology branch in Govt. Women College in Rajasthan which is one of the best Women only Colleges in India.
I had worked on some projects in college but exposure to diverse technologies was very much less. I felt compelled to pursue a master’s degree to both increase job opportunities and dive deeper in one of the domains in computer science.
After completing the BTech I worked in a startup, After that I got admission in IIIT Hyderabad, India in 2017 as a part-time Mtech student in computer science. As my interest developed, I talked to different research advisors for exploring my knowledge in research and converted to full-time MS student in data science under Prof P. Krishna Reddy. My MS would tentatively finish around May/June 2021.
I am looking towards joining the industry in an engineering role. I am interested both in data science and software development. My college organizes campus placement sessions around December every year. After Outreachy, I am planning to polish my data structures and algorithms knowledge and sit for campus placement.
I feel that after coming to IIIT, I have gained a lot of skills. I have worked on projects in distributed systems and machine learning. I was head teaching assistant for the Distributed Systems course and managed making assignments and paper evaluations for a class of around 150 students.
I am open to learning new skills for advancing my career. I am also open for remote jobs. I can communicate in Hindi and English language.
To everybody reading this. Please feel free to contact me in case you want to ask anything or you feel that I could be a part of your organization!
