Hi. I'm Chirag.

I'm a graduate student in the Silicon valley who is fascinated by technology and design.

I study at Stanford.

I am an MS candidate in Computer Science at Stanford University, and expect to graduate in Spring '14. My specializations are systems and software theory.

At Stanford, I am responsible for detecting and reporting plagiarism in assignments for CS 106A, CS 106B and CS 106X. To aid in this effort, I designed the MOSSLESS portal for managing MOSS reports and submission archives. In addition, I have been a course assistant for CS 140 and CS 142.

IIT Kanpur
I've studied at IIT Kanpur.

I graduated as a Bachelor of Technology in Computer Science and Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur in 2012. My curriculum focused on systems and software development, with courses on advanced multi-core processors, software engineering, and compiler optimizations.

I've interned at Microsoft.

In the summer of 2013, I interned at Microsoft in the Online Services Division at Bellevue, WA. My projects involved understanding telemetry from the Windows app store to generate better app recommendations, and developing tools to make Cosmos - Microsoft's cloud platform - more accessible to developers throughout the company.

I've interned at Samsung.

In the summer of 2011, I interned at Samsung in the Google Android Product Group, at Bangalore. My project involved developing a cloud service from the ground-up that could provide contextually-aware services to the user.

I'm from Mumbai.

I grew up in the friendly suburbs of Mumbai, and although I haven't lived there for almost a decade, I'm proud of the bustling city. I'm a big fan of the Vada Pav, Mumbai's famous staple snack. Apart from Mumbai, I've lived in places like Kanpur and Palo Alto, with short stints in Bangalore and Seattle. If I had to settle down, it would be in Montreal.

I love to travel.
I've visited places around the world such as Europe, the United Arab Emirates, south-east Asia, Nepal, Canada and Alaska. Places I want to visit include Washington DC, Florida, Russia, New Zealand, the Antarctic continent, and low-earth orbit.

I make things.

A microprocessor. A 3D game. A mobile app. A mini laptop. Over time, I've made a bunch of stuff. The joy of creating is in the process itself, the learning gained from the experience, and in its usefulness to others.
