Q1. Please share your educational and professional journey with us?

I developed my interest for coding during my B.Tech. When I joined Masters in NIT, I gave a thought about my future and which field I want to pursue. Every answer was going towards Machine Learning. I was quite interested in techniques and algorithms of ML. It was always fun to play around. After that, I joined Dassault Systèmes as a Data Scientist. That’s how my learning journey started and it is going on.

Q2. What did attract you towards Data Science Domain?

It is mixture of computer science – coding, logic, observation skills, thinking power. They all are my favorite areas to spend my time on. Every time the task needs different approach. You learn a lot every single time. I find it very interesting.
