Hi! I’m Amrita. I enjoy building cool software solutions to impactful, challenging problems. I also love teaching fun CS concepts and am currently pursuing research on the application of deep learning to understanding misinformation online.
Here are some of the things I’ve been involved in over the past few years, both within and outside of the Stanford and UC Berkeley university community.
For more details, check out my full resume here.
- Software Engineering Intern, Ads Unique Reach – Google
- Implemented a scalable solution for next-generation population reporting to Google advertisers, integrating information such as region-specific internet/TV users into petabytes of data served & analytics for ad campaign reach
- Worked with stakeholders across teams to define requirements and create a detailed design for a new data schema and pipelines, baking in latency-sensitive querying for diverse use cases and consistency with existing Ads systems
- Social Media Lab – Stanford University
- Leverage ML techniques to understand the ephemerality of fake news as part of an interdisciplinary research team
- Adapt CV+NLP Deep Learning models to identify salient textual and visual features of multimodal fake news articles
- Graduate Teaching Assistant – Stanford University
- Teach Artificial Intelligence concepts including ML topics, Search Problems, and Markov Decision Processes to undergraduate and graduate students as part of course staff for CS 221, Stanford’s upper division AI course
- Software Engineering Intern, Cloud Observability – Splunk
- Designed and developed dashboards for SLO discoverability, enabling users to dive into, visualize, and share information on Service Level Objectives across regions, teams, K8s clusters, and services. Led team Hackathon project on automated URL recognition within messages that is currently deployed to production, serving ~10K Splunk users
- Head Undergraduate Student Instructor – UC Berkeley EECS
- Led development and deployment of course material as Head of Content, design resources for students without prior programming experience, teach sections of up to 400 students in CS61A
- Research Assistant – Berkeley AI Research Lab, Dr. Trevor Darrell’s Research Group
- Long-horizon Planning – contributing to project centered on the use of skill composition to improve performance in complex robotic manipulation tasks
- Computer Vision – adapted and evaluated the performance of Continual Learning approaches on Object Detection tasks in the Berkeley DeepDrive Dataset
- Undergraduate Student Instructor (Teaching Assistant) – UC Berkeley EECS
- Taught 40+ students in weekly lab and discussion sections and designed resources for CS61A, UC Berkeley’s introductory Computer Science course taught in Python, SQL, and Scheme
- Intern – Genista Biosciences
- Worked on software development, microbial testing, and graphic design projects at a startup focused on ensuring food safety
- Coach/Mentor – FIRST Robotics, Silver Creek High School
- Mentor students interested in STEM at my local public high school, helping them cultivate software development skills and a passion for engineering and design through robotics
