About Me

Hi!!! I'm Ashwin... If you've come so far to visit this website, I guess you really are interested in getting to know me and my professional experience. :P

For starters, I am a Computer Science Graduate and I love football. It is my favorite hobby and I play it when I want to get my mind off things. I like to travel and visit new places and at the same time hang out with friends and family, which is why I would prefer a career with the perfect work-life balance.

I aim to become a Developer, learning new technology and implementing them in real-time for the betterment of society. I am currently pursuing my Masters in Computer Science at Arizona State University. My areas of interest include Data Mining, Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing.

Actively Seeking Full-Time Opportunities starting Summer 2020.
