Who am I ?

Machine Learning Researcher | Data Scientist

I am currently working with Mindstix Software Labs as Data Scientist.

At Mindstix I am working as Computer Vision researcher for billion dollar client, who deals in beauty prodcuts. Previously I was working on Recommendation Engines for Retail. I have also developed Chatbot based on RASA framework which then I integrated with Slack and Face Recognition System which is hybrid of Facenet and Dlib.

Previously I was working with Coriolis Technologies Pvt Ltd. I have developed and maintained the number of applications in Coriolis such as License plate recognition engine, SOAP-API client in C, AMI automation tool for AWS CLI, Orchestration tool for Puppet, Chef & Ansible written in Ruby On Rails.

Other than development, my responsibilities at Coriolis includes working as Scrum master, leading the small team of Developer and QA members.

My area of research is Artificial general intelligence(AGI). I am working on an application of reinforcement learning to create a Cognitive systems.

Personal Info

I have completed Diploma in Big Data Analytics and Bachelor of Engineering from University Of Pune.

I am a quick learner and enthusiastic about learning new technologies. I am working with C, Python, Java, R, Kotlin, Bash, Go language for my development purpose.

I have also worked on some hobby projects such as developing apps in Kotlin for android platform, real-time image classification in an android app by training machine learning model on the server and recompiling it using TensorFlow for Android, another one is creating real-time face recognition using facenet as backend.

In my free time I like to work on interesting projects in Data Science domain. I also have completed courses related to Machine Learning, AI from Udemy, Coursera.

Recently I have open sourced a Face Recognition library based on Facenet Named as facenet_recognition.

My Services

Data Science & Machine Learning

I have worked with Classification Problems such Titanic: Machine Learning from Disaster, Otto Group Product Classification Challenge, Imbalanced classes.

Some of the regression problem I have worked on House Prices: Advanced Regression Techniques, Loan Prediction. There are other projects that I have worked with some of them are NLP, Collaborative filtering Recommendation System.

Computer Vision

I have worked with computer vision problems such as building License Plate Recognition for Indian License Plate, where the width of the license plate is not fixed, digit dimension and font is not fixed so built ocr and detector for it.

I have also created Real-Time Face Recognition Engine using Facenet, which can detect faces and assign the label to it from the trained model. There are some projects where I have reatrained and optimized it for an android app.

Mobile Development

For some time I was working on Android Mobile Development using Java as well as Kotlin, I have created some basics app for Android platform.

I have also implemented Machine Learning models in an android app as the local resource such as Festival Recognition App in which Indian Festival are classified such as Holi Diwali etc. I have used Keras and Tensorflow for ML model development.


I was working with a client to do some specific task with Puppet, Chef and Ansible configuration managers, in which using Rails where the user can input job in json for any of above configuration managers.

I am familiar with working of Ansible, Chef and Puppet configuration managers

Software Development

For my development task, I use language suitable for the task. I have created a REST client using Golang for the specific use case.

I have worked with Ruby on Rails for two years in which I was developing REST API using Rails as backend.

Soft Skills

I worked on some hobby projects about which I write an article on LinkedIn. I also like to present my work to other people so we can grow together

I always try to improve my communication skills. I like to work on new technologies and ready to deal with any challenges.
