I completed my bachelor's degree in 2014 from Rashtrasant Tukadoji Maharaj Nagpur University, India and joined HSBC Technology, Pune, India as a Software Engineer. During my work at HSBC Technology, I created applications in the banking domain, specifically in the sub-domain of demand deposits, overdrafts, term deposits, and statements and advice. After working in the IT industry for 3.5 years, I left HSBC Technology as a Senior Software Engineer and started my Master's at SRH Hochschule Heidelberg in Applied Computer Science in 2018. During my Master, I worked as a working student in SAP SE, where my responsibility was to create a process automation tool using GitHub webhooks for Open Source Program Office. I finished my Master of Science in April 2020, where, for my thesis project, I created a framework that analyzes the user stories created during a project kickoff and applied Topic Modelling, feature engineering, and natural language processing to provide a matrix of potential machine learning algorithm that can be trained for a set of features from the data warehouse to answer the user stories. Since April 2020, I have been working as an Academic Researcher at SRH Hochschule Heidelberg, where I am teaching Master students concepts dealing with sequence data, text mining, natural language processing, machine learning operations, and data management concepts comprising data profiling, data cleaning, and ETL job creation. In March 2021, I joined Prof. Dr. Michael Gertz's Database Systems Research group as a Doctoral Researcher at the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science.
