Girish Malkarnenkar, 2nd year MS CS @ UT Austin
I am a graduate student pursuing my Master's in Computer Science at UT Austin. I joined in Fall 2011 and expect to graduate in May 2013. From Fall 2012 onwards, I have been working as a Graduate Research Assistant with Prof. Raymond Mooney in the Machine Learning Research Group. During Fall 2011 and Spring 2012, I worked as a Graduate Research Assistant in the Visualization group of the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC). During the summer of 2012, I interned at Oblong Industries, a start-up based in Los Angeles.
Before joining UT Austin, I worked for 1 year as a Software Developer (Member Technical Staff) in Oracle India Private Limited (Server Technologies), Bangalore. I received a Bachelors (Honors) degree in Computer Science from Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani in August, 2010. During the 4 years of my undergrad life, I had the opportunity to interact with some of the best minds from various parts of India. I was chosen for a research internship at Technischen Universität Berlin in Germany under a fellowship sponsored by DAAD, the German Academic Exchange Service. I also interned in D-Link India and at INSEAD Business School, Fontainebleau in France.
I am interested in applications of artificial intelligence and machine learning especially in the areas of Computer Vision and Natural Language Processing.
