Yes, this is me

Bio

I am a second year undergraduate at UT Austin studying computer science through the Turing Scholars honors program. I am interested in various topics across math and computer science, and I'll try to learn anything on which I can get my hands. Currently, I am doing research under Dr. Calvin Lin in the field of microarchitecture, but I'm still open to anything. After I graduate from UT, I hope to pursue a PhD in computer science.

Additionally, I'm interested in competitive problem solving. This led me to take part in math contests such as the AMC/AIME in high school and the Putnam in my undergrad. I'm also actively learning algorithmic problem solving techniques for competitive programming. I take part in Codeforces rounds whenever I can along with USACO monthly contests (as an observer).

I also consume unimaginable amounts of time watching Bollywood movies. I am a diehard SRK fan, and I have lost track of how many times I have seen Kal Ho Naa Ho and Swades, among others. I am probably listening to this song on loop right now, and I urge you to do the same.

I'd like to believe I've traveled a bit. Below is a map I made of the US counties I've lived in and been in. I used this tool to make the map. Hopefully the map becomes more green soon!
