Hi there! :D

I’m Dipro, a junior at CS @ Illinois. I’m an experienced software developer (Facebook) and undergraduate researcher (NCSA, IGL). I am passionate about using data to understand the world around us better.

To that end, I currently work at Forward Lab on automated domain-based keyword detection, and at LPNA on Tucker tensor completion. Previously, I worked at Facebook on their Search Typeahead technology, and at NCSA on dimensionality reduction for complex biological data. Later, I’ll be at Airbnb Seattle and Facebook NYC.

I also really like to teach. Outside class, I help organize Reflections | Projections (2 years and counting!) and staying fit through Bodyattack and Bodycombat training (I lost 100 lbs in a year and a half!).
