• I worked with the Creator and Publisher Experience (CPX) team specifically on Creator Studio which is the first and only stop for publishers and creators to easily create, manage and monetize their entire portfolio of content (text, links, photos, videos, stories, and upcoming formats) across the entire Facebook(FB) and Instagram (IG) ecosystem.

• Publishers/Creators will be able to post their content across many distribution channels like News Feed, Stories, Groups, Instagram to reach their community.

• They will use our insights to understand which pieces of content are performing best for their community, and who makes up their community.

• They will engage with their audience effectively and efficiently through inbox which is a one stop shop for responding to all FB and IG feed comments and DMs thereby strengthening their relationship to their communities.

• If you are an admin of any page - just give it a try:

Amazon Alexa
Software Engineer (Feb 2019 - July 2020: Bay Area)

Alexa is the groundbreaking cloud-based intelligent agent that powers Echo and other devices designed around your voice. As a Software Engineer with Alexa AI team, my mission is to push the envelope in Artificial Intelligence (AI), Natural Language Understanding (NLU), Machine Learning (ML), Dialog Management, Automatic Speech
Recognition (ASR), and Audio Signal Processing, in order to provide the best-possible ex
perience for our customers. I partner with scientists, platform & ML engineers, solution architects to help design, implement and connect sophisticated algorithms to our cloud based engines.

As one of the early engineers with this team, I worked (mostly single-handedly) on creating the core pieces of the skill authoring portal for Alexa Conversations Developer Experience preview which is a new deep learning-based approach that developers can use for creating natural voice experiences on Alexa with less effort, fewer lines of code and less training data than before. This new skill authoring experience helps developers create natural, flexible, multi-turn dialogs within a single skill and also helps them seamlessly integrate multiple skills into a single conversation without the need for explicit skill invocation and unnecessary context repetition. Alexa Conversations developer portal combines an AI-driven dialog manager with an advanced dialog simulation engine that automatically generates synthetic training data. The skill authoring portal that I built collects API definitions, provides an annotation tool for annotating sample dialogs that include the prompts that you want Alexa to say to the customer and also collects all the actions you expect the customer to take without imposing much cognitive overload to the developers interacting with the tool. Alexa Conversations downstream services uses this information to generate dialog flows and variations thus learning the large number of paths that these dialogs could take.

I was the instructor
for the CSE 205 online course “Object Oriented Programming and Data Structures using Java” and 
CSE 110 online course "Principles of Programming with Java" 

Graduate Research Assistant (June 2014 - Aug 2014)
Under the guidance of Professor Dr. Subbarao Kambhampati, I investigated the incorporation of a general planning capability into the robot to facilitate peer-to-peer human-robot teaming, in which the human and robot are viewed as teammates that are physically separated. I also performed an analysis of human factors on the effectiveness of proactive support for human aware planning in human robot teaming. I performed the evaluation in a simulated USAR task, in which the efficacy of teaming is not only dependent on individual performance, but also on teammates’ interactions with each other.
