Hi there, welcome to my home page! I am a multidisciplinary researcher and computer scientist by training. Recently, I co-founded a company Stem Lending, a FinTech startup based in Jersey City.
My previous roles include: as CTO of a venture-funded tech startup, Yellowdig; VP at Goldman Sachs Technology Division, developing technologies for multi-asset buy-side trading; as a Lead Scientist in GE's Corporate Research headquarters in upstate New York and as VP in Citigroup's Technology division.
My interest lies in businesses grounded on research & technology.

Prior to joining founding Stem Lending, I gained experience in diverse business verticals: technology, healthcare, investment banking and higher education. I worked at Tower Research Capital, a hedge fund; Mismi, an algorithmic trading start-up; and Citigroup, a top-tier investment bank. Here, my work was in algorithmic high frequency trading. In 2009, I graduated from UNC Chapel Hill with a PhD in Biochemistry, with dual minor in Computational Biology, Molecular Biophysics. In 2004, I graduated from IIT Kanpur with a BTech in Computer Science & Engineering. Even earlier, I studied at Delhi Public School, Bhilai, where I was the Head Boy during 1999-2000.
My doctoral dissertation, Computational modeling and automation techniques to study biomolecular dynamics is available on Amazon. My bachelor's thesis, A novel approach to structural comparison of proteins, is available here.
