About me

I am open for hire for a remote working arrangement.

Hi! Just in case you haven’t noticed you are at Sapan’s homepage. Currently I am pursuing my Masters in Computer Science from Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (École Polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne). I did my graduation from Indian Institute of Information Technology, Allahabad, India with a CGPA of 9.05.

I am interested in Designing Algorithms, Image Processing, Graphics and Visualization and Web Technologies.

I spend most of my time in programming. I mostly  program in C++ and Java although I do have a good knowledge of programming in Javascript and Perl. I have also worked with HTML, PHP, SQL, PL/SQL, JESS in my projects.

I like learning internet technologies, web development and reading and writing blogs. My other interest includes swimming, playing computer games specially AOE and outdoor games cricket, volleyball.

Apart from semester courses I am doing my semester project with Xiaowen Dong on the “Data mining on Twitter”.

While at IIITA, I was awarded the prestigious DAAD fellowship by the German Government in 2010 for carrying out my research at Technische Universität Dortmund under the guidance of Prof. Dr. Bernhard Steffen. During my internship there I visited nearby countries France, Netherlands, Switzerland, Italy. I also won the first prize at Young IT Professionals Awards in March, 2010. I was also the recipient of the excellence scholarship at IIITA.

So that’s a bit about me.

Thanks for visting.
