नमस्ते (Namaste)! Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Shubhankar, but most friends call me Shuby. I’m a first year graduate student
(MSR), at The Robotics Institute, in CMU’s School of Computer Science.
I enjoy thinking about ways to solve cutting edge research problems through rapid prototyping and systems building. In the past, I’ve had
the incredible fortune to have worked with and been mentored by brilliant and inspiring individuals.
David Thompson with whom I designed machine learning algorithms to understand the
impact climate change is having on coral reef degradation, through my work as a
Caltech Summer Research Fellow at
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Yogesh Wadadekar
and C.H. Ishwara Chandra, under
whose mentorship at the National Center for Radio Astrophysics
(TIFR), an amazing team and I built distributed data science pipelines to enable new cosmological insights for the world’s largest sub-GHz frequency radio telescope, the GMRT. Venkat Padmanabhan and Akshay Uttama Nambi at Microsoft Research, with whom I was designing algorithms and new monitoring architectures to analyze network performance in large scale data centers. Among other things, in my spare time I love reading books, listening to music, and trying new types of food.
