My name is Vinay Uday Prabhu [Anagram : 'Aha! Bury and ivy up!'], and I have an accent.
Like most superheroes, I masquerade as a simpleton during the day, claiming to be a Data Scientist at a seemingly nondescript startup in Valle de Silicio. Prior to this, I spent my youth trying to feed squirrels in Schenley Park whilst accumulating grey hair, wisdom and a PhD from Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh.

For what its worth, I maintain a f̶a̶i̶r̶l̶y̶ ̶ ̶w̶e̶l̶l̶ ̶ poorly updated research blog here.
My 'near-future' objectives are as follows:
Any one visiting this page whose passions align with the above objectives may feel strongly encouraged to get in contact with me.
