Software Engineer II at Microsoft
I work as Software Engineer for Microsoft Azure Production & Infrastructure Engineering team. My day to day work revolve much around distributed systems and machine learning. I am excited to explore areas like Natural Language Processing and Knowledge Bases and see if they can help solve bunch of problems yet to be commercially solved.
