This blog documents my data science learning curve, starting from collosal newb status. Yes, I was one back in early 2015 when I started this blog. I like to think I’m less of a newb now. This blog primarily documents my learning. I find blogging an excellent way to structure my learning into notes (that just happen to be blog posts).

I have a Masters Degree in Economics from Indira Gandhi Institute of Development Research, an advanced research institute fully funded by India’s Central Bank, RBI. I also have a background in electrical engineering and got my B.Tech from NIT Warangal.

Back in 2016, I pursued a brief internship at a Fintech start-up called PaySense and got a flavor of data science at the workplace. I am still learning and exploring. I’m interested in econometrics, time series analysisstatistical / machine learning and how they apply to problems within economics and finance.

I currently work at CRISIL, in their quant-finance division, based out of Pune, India.
