I am a PhD student at Iowa State University, Iowa- United States and my research focuses on software configurability and optimization. In the past I have been a SQL Server Database Administrator and Developer working with Tata consultancy Services ltd. for almost four years. I love volunteering and being engaged with various tech communities at my current institution and outside. I am also an avid hiker, love reading, cooking, and yoga. I would love to help mentees who are in the early stages of their career and need help making the most out of their current roles or in furthering their career. I could also be of assistance to students who are passionate about tech, and are preparing to transition into industry or into academic research. Additionally, I would love to interact with students & professionals who require help in developing their leadership skills.
