What I've Started
URESHII MENTAL HEALTH FORUM
Ureshii is also the name of my mental health forum where I invite experts in mental health to share their knowledge and educate students about mental wellbeing. You can learn more about it at ureshii.life
YOUTH AI PLATFORM
My aim at the Ecole Mondiale Youth AI platform is to teach people about ML & AI and show to teach programming to the vast majority of teenagers at my high school. Currently, as the newest generation entering the workforce, my generation (Gen Z) is the most technologically adept. Machine learning is revolutionizing the world and I want more people to start learning about it so that we can change the world to be a better place.
ADVANCED MATHEMATICS CLUB
The mathematics club is a club dedicated to teaching all kinds of math ranging from competitive mathematics to the school curriculum. My dream for the pure mathematics club is that it would become something more than a place for learning. Currently, the STEM fields are divided into 28% of females and 72% of males. I want to channel and increase the interest of girls in mathematics at a young age so that those numbers can become a bit more even.
FELINE ADOPTION DRIVE
My goal when starting the Feline Adoption Drive was to increase the number of adoptions of our furry friends. After researching about the relation between pets and a human's mental health, I was encouraged to promote the adoption of cats to improve human's mental wellbeing
At the programming club my primary focus was to teach my classmates about app develop and web development as many of them were struggling in our digital design class and consequently shying away from coding. The programming club expanded and is now conducted at 5 schools worldwide.
What I've Done
Improving one’s mental wellbeing involves 3 steps, tracking, analyzing, and suggesting. Ureshii is a mental health app that does exactly that! It uses machine learning technology with clustering algorithms to recommend the apt activities and create the best mental health path for each user. Check it out at ureshii.life and consider donating to the cause here.
THE AIR-PACK 2.0
The Air-Pack 2.0 is a modular backpack which uses detachable modules to bring backpacks, an age old concept to the 21st century. The Air-Pack adapts and changes to meet your needs for any and every situation. The Air-Pack also incorporates new technology which everyone needs on the go.
Funetics is a multimedia peripheral game used to teach dyslexic children how to read through phonetics. This robot uses an interactive game that has a physical component so that children can associate phonetic sounds with certain colours and tactile touch.
LOCOMOTIVE TRASH COLLECTION SYSTEM
The locomotive trash collection system is a system of chutes and collects tubes meant to be installed on Indian railways to reduce littering and trash on the rails. The system has various features such as scent diffusers, brush cleaners, and rodent blockers to manage and dispose of the trash in a well-organized fashion. This project was presented to the ministry of railways in Delhi and received extremely positive comments.
Water Geek is a leak detecting robot that goes through water pipes and uses various sensors and cameras so officials can remotely identify the leakage through remote control and locate the source of the leak. This project was highly praised by the officials in the BMC in Mumbai.
Where I've Worked

At Microsoft Research I worked on Project Karya, an initiative to help move 100 million people out of extreme poverty. Specifically, I worked on an AI Whatsapp chat bot regarding the same.
June 2020 - May 2021
At 221B-Analytics I worked on creating dashboards, implementing machine learning in the form of classification and clustering, and working on social media by creating advertisements.
