 "Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one." : Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955).

"Eat mud!": Overheard on an Indian play-ground circa '90s.


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

In little temporal bursts between watching videos of crocodilians, cats and failblog compilations, I w̶a̶t̶c̶h̶ ̶c̶o̶m̶e̶d̶y̶ ̶c̶e̶n̶t̶r̶a̶l̶ ̶r̶o̶a̶s̶t̶ ̶v̶i̶d̶e̶o̶s̶  work on a few interesting research problems which fall under a myriad of topics, such as Machine Learning, Information Theory, Social Networks, Communications... well, 'Data Sciences' really.

For what its worth, I maintain a f̶a̶i̶r̶l̶y̶ ̶ ̶w̶e̶l̶l̶ ̶ poorly updated research blog here

My 'near-future' objectives are as follows:

  1.  To become a qualified Quack, or should I say, a Dual-Quack .[Achieved!]   
  2.  To scale Amon Amarth                                                                                                                      
  3.  To build a fool proof language translator for Kenneth Mc Cormick.                                 
  4. To procure employment on Battleship Galactica
  5. B̶e̶n̶c̶h̶-̶p̶r̶e̶s̶s̶ ̶3̶1̶5̶ ̶o̶n̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶d̶e̶c̶l̶i̶n̶e̶ Keep it at 225 on the decline after the Rotator-cuff tear.

Any one visiting this page whose passions align with the above objectives may feel strongly encouraged to get in contact with me.
