Data. Information. Insights. Impact.

Hi there! I am Naga. I've written my first piece of computer code during my seventh grade and haven't looked back since. I am a Data Nerd and kind of obsessed with Collaborative Filtering and Matrix Factorization (Spotify, I see what you did there!). On a very different note, I am also a freelance web developer, and writer. More recently, I've been into Game development and testing out my C# skills on the Unity Engine. My life-long obsession with Python has followed me through as I implement ML algorithms and try to answer questions using data.

Data is Information. Information leads to better Insights. Insights help improve performance metrics. It is very easy to miss out on important insights by being obsessed by data and that is where I come in. Equipped with proficiency in Python and other powerful data analysis tools, I am to provide better analysis and derive meaningful insights out of Data. My knowledge of Machine learning, Game Theory, Time Series Analysis and other algorithms place me in a better situation to understand the power of data analytics in an altogether new way.

I'm currently seeking oportunities in the fields of Data Science, Machine Learning, Operations Research or in Supply Chain Management, where I could leverage data to derive insights. Intellectual challenges, creative flexibility and doing things that matter are a few objectives of my topmost priority while seeking an opportunity at any organization. If you happen to find my profile as a possible best fit for your organization, please feel free to leave me a Message below.
