About me

I am passionate about programming from its mathematical to its industrial aspects. My interests lies in Functional Programming, Knowledge Engineering, and Decentralized Web. I am a self-learning, research-focused, and hands-on programmer with experience in building sytems at both server and client level. I’ve worked in R&D organizations as well as handled large Enterprise Client Delivery projects. My idea of leadership is show-and-tell and less leadership more collaboration. I value open-source culture and try to contribute to open-source projects on the side.
