Vivek is an undergraduate student at Drexel University pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science with prospected minors in Mathematics and Data Science. Vivek is extremely passionate about his interests in mathematics, data science, machine learning, and blockchain. As a result, he plans to pursue concentrations like - Artificial Intelligence, Computer Vision, Computer Networks & Security, & Computing Systems (OS & Concurrent Programming). Currently, Vivek is working full-time as a software engineering co-op at Susquehanna International Group (SIG) in Philadelphia.
In addition to the solid academic record, Vivek has also been actively working as a researcher, campus organizations leader, teaching assistant, and part-time intern at on-campus startups. For example, he is actively serving as a teaching assistant for the Advanced Programming Techniques (CS 265) claass, and is also serving as a president for the Data Structures and Algorithms Club. He is also a member of Drexel Data Science Group and Drexel Google Developers Student Club. More information about his projects, skills, experiences, and more can be found on his personal website (see below) and LinkedIn profile.
