About Me

I was a Masters Student in Computer Science at Stony Brook University. I used to work as a software engineer at Directi before I came here. Before that, I taught courses on Operating Systems & Systems Programming at Mukesh Patel School. Before that I took a course on craft bakery at The Institute of Hotel Management (Mumbai) after which I started a healthy bakery initiative. Around this time, I wrote a noodle recipe book. Before that I was working as a programmer at Calsoft Inc.

My currently default language of choice is Python 2.X Javascript. Before I fell in love with Python (and then Javascript), I used to worship C++. I still do heavily use all 3 languages though.

Update: I'm experimenting with a visual wikipedia navigation tool called wikipins and would love to hear what you think about it. Write to me about it at dhruvbird+wikipins@gmail.com

About this site

This site aims to be dyslexia friendly. You can change a few basic layout and presentational elements by clicking on the Customize Layout link here or above.

This site is also accommodative of non-native English speakers. If you don't understand the meaning of any word or phrase, just double-click or select it with your mouse. This will pop up a help box which contains a link titled More Info. which you can click on to get more information about the selected text.

You can also navigate this site using the built-in terminal emulator. The emulator can be invoked using the ~ key on your keyboard (do NOT press the Shift Key while pressing this key). I am using the freely available jQuery Terminal Emulator to provide this functionality (will work only in Firefox and Chrome).

Research Interests

My interests lie in the areas of Databases, Information Retrieval, Distributed Systems, and Data Mining (not necessarily in that order). I've worked on a few projects in these areas.
