Now. Present. Alive. I guess…
Currently, I am living somewhere on the surface of a pale blue dot; a land called Nepal.
I am living in Kathmandu, Nepal where I have lived more than half of my life (and still ticking).
I am working as a Data Scientist in a small (yet exciting) Barclays Acceleratred startup Docsumo. Only few know of this little galaxy which is revolving around solving the important problem of extracting information and knowledge from documents.
Note the word “Scientist” which is an overstatement for me as I know so little about everything in the universe!
However, right now I have my mind (and body) on Computer Vision and NLP, especially algorithms and Machine Learning.
Also, I am working (on and off) on my two side projects:

With lockdown in place here in Kathmandu I have solidified a few habits:
Right now, I am applying for grad schools in USA. I have been rejected by 3 universitties (top 100) so far. Let’s see how this goes.
Nevertheless, I am also thinking of applying to Canada once this pandemic flattens (to some extent).
I have deleted all the social media account in order to focus more on my learning and thinking processes.
