I am second year undergraduate student at BITS Pilani, Hyderabad Campus. I was selected to develop for KDE in GSoC 2016 and was mentored by KDE developers Boudhayan Gupta and Pinak Ahuja. My GSoC project is a novel idea to simplify file selections in a file manager through the use of a virtual folder. I have also attended and presented my project at a two other open source conferences, QtCon 2016, Berlin and WTL Conf 2017, Jaipur.

I have been an avid Linux user ever since the middle of high school and I have been using KDE as my desktop environment of choice for three years. I have a keen interest in competitive programming and I have participated and organised many high school and intra­collegiate competitive programming competitions. Apart from programming, I have a keen interest in aviation, astronomy, and photography.
