Tactual Labs Co.
Researcher, Toronto, ON, Canada
May 2016 - May 2017
Tactual Labs Co. is an innovator in human-to-computer sensing and processing technology with a veteran team leading the development of the most responsive and capable user interface technologies. I Worked on Enabling User-Differentiation in Frequency-Division Capacitive Multi-Touch Sensors using concepts in Machine Learning, Signal & Image Processing. Designed, Implemented and tested a novel differentiation & sensing algorithm that can discriminate between multiple users and single user’s hands on a 10-inch tablet form factor prototype capacitive sensor. Also, developed interaction techniques that depict the mobility and usefulness of the sensing technology (Python/Java/Octave.)
Centre for Vision Research - York University
Research Assistant, Toronto, ON, Canada
January 2016 - May 2016
I worked as a Research Assistant for 4 months in a research lab that deals with active vision systems and robotics. Here, I learnt how to design Convolutional Neural Network architectures for detecting objects in cluttered scenes. I got the opportunity to play with Tensorflow and pyCaffe for my work on backpack detection. I was also involved in helping lab colleagues in building vision datasets.

Junior Researcher, Baddi, HP, India
July 2012 - August 2015
Security Defence Systems is a 29 years old ISO 9001 company that manufactures complex range of B.D.D.S. Equipments (Bomb Detection & Disposal systems). Its products are sold to India's defence organizations that include Airport Authority of India, NSG, SPG, CRPF, BSF, Northen Command, J & K Police almost all other state police & Public sectors undertakings. I have worked in the R&D unit of the organization for varied durations over 3 years (during term breaks) working on metal detectors and bomb-disposal robot. I have represented the company at national and international events.
XCellence in Bio Innovations & Technologies Pvt. Lmt.
Software Developer & Technical Lead, Hyderabad, TN, India
October 2013 - August 2015
Xcellence In Bio Innovations And Technologies is a start up company incubated at TBI- BITS Pilani, Hyderabad. One of the streamline devices, RightBiotic is a point of care device for rapid detection of antibiotic sensitivity of pathogenic organisms found in human urine in cases of UTI. The technology is IPR protected under application for both the readout device and consumable reagents filed by BITS-Pilani with Dr. Suman Kapur as the inventor.
I have built the prototype device and been a technical team member from the inception of the idea.
Technical Head, Hyderabad, TN, India
November 2011 - December 2014
An educational services start-up with a vision to redefine co-curriculars and activities for better personality development along with improving technical and managerial skills . Valonia aims to give students the right exposure and awareness to lead tomorrow and a knowledge base that is enough for them to decide and choose on the career that matches their aptitude. We are a student run organisation with strong support and mentorship from educationalists, Alumni and successful entrepreneurs. I Organized and headed robotics workshops and judged technical events at colleges in Hyderabad.
Co-founder & CTO
August 2013 - December 2014
It started as a project on making an Under Vehicle Surveillance System in 2013. The prototype uses image processing and machine learning techniques to detect threats concealed on the under belly of a vehicle. I made the working software for the prototype and a simulation using CAD tools. I was convinced with the results and saw potential commercial opportunity in this project. So, along with a team, we tried to initiate a startup. Our efforts were acknowledged for coming up with a successful business idea at the BITSAA Global Meet in January 2014. I still get involved in improving the product software.
CSIR - Central Electronics Engineering Research Institute
May 2013 - July 2013
I worked in the Machine Vision Laboratory in the Digital Systems group of the organisaiton. I was working with Dr. Ing. Jagdish Lal Raheja on creating anaglyph images and live video stream for 3D endoscopy. I worked as a research intern for 10 weeks.
