I passed out of IIT Roorkee in 2016 with a dual degree(B.Tech & M.Tech) in Electrical Engineering but a heart and mind for Data. I have been dabbling with it for quite a while since 2014, since being the first intern @Analytics Vidhya when it was a single room entity.
- WorldQuant (Research Consultant Internship): Lots of Fundamental alphas with a few which went live and made decent chunk of money.
- Microsoft SMSG: Xbox gaming and marketing. Tried to push data as a tool for decision making, got shut. Eventually bought a PS4 🙂
- ZS (Data Science Associate) : Survival analysis and lots of communication. Learned the importance of to the point, succinct arguments.
- Sports Analytics Startup: Lots of learnings and the basis for the blog. Brief but very intense and learning across the board.
I’m currently employed as a Data Scientist with an ML focussed fund(ASQI). Having worked on problems across the spectrum. I have a keen interest in ML as a self serving system. Starting off with a problem statement, building hypothesis/models and finally turning things to production.
