As a Mathematics and Computer Science student, I am interested in Machine Learning as it is an intersection of both Mathematics and Computer Science. My current research focus is on using machine learning to build adaptive security systems. In the future, I hope to work as a machine learning engineer.

Non-Work Related Activities/Interests: 

I am passionate about the intersection of technology with social entrepreneurship. Last summer, I intervened at Jara, a non-profit organization building an ed-tech device for children in emergencies. I am also a Social Innovation fellow as certified by Starting Bloc institute. I am an advocate for diversity in and outside of the world of technology. I have organized and participated in many events, focused on promoting and celebrating diversity, as an officer of the Association for Women in Mathematics and Nepalese Student Association at Youngstown State University.
