ACADEMIC PROFILE

At a glance

I recently graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor's degree from DePauw University, where I majored in Computer Science and minored in Economics. I also studied abroad at the University of Oxford, where I took concentrated courses in International Economics and Creative Writing. My strong suits in computer science are mobile and web development, and my strength in Economics lies in development economics, often with an international perspective. My future academic goal is to either pursue a Master's degree in Software Engineering or Human Computer Interaction, or a tech-oriented MBA.

Two more things

I ran for student government and won both positions I ran for! Unfortunately, however, I had to vacate my position shortly after because I got accepted to my study abroad program at Oxford. Life sometimes makes you make tough decisions!

I participated in a mock "shaadi" - a fake Indian wedding celebration - as the groom in a cultural event organized by the South Asian Student Society. The aim was to showcase an aspect of South Asian culture most people in the US are not familiar with. It was very fun!
