I am a Santa Clara, CA resident and have been working as a DBA, Database perforamce and software engineer for 20+ years in some of the biggest companies in the bay area. With this deep rooted love for data and programming, it was a natural progression for me to join MIDS program to learn more about how to leverage both these skills. It has been the best decision of my life. I am looking forward to using my newly aquired skills and past experience in meaningful way.

Fun fact: I am related to Shakuntala Devi, the human computer ( and can speak 5 languages.
