Ankit Aggarwal

CS Grad Student at Stony Brook University

Interests: Distributed Systems, Algorithms, Computer Vision, Machine Learning, Networking, and Robotics.

Welcome. My name is Ankit Aggarwal. I am a graduate student (2018) at Stony Brook University in New York, majoring in Computer Science. Currently, I am exploring internship opportunities for Summer 2018.

I like to solve problems with code and collaboration. I support DIY and open source initiatives, and can code in C/C++, Python, JavaScript, Java or PHP on Linux/Windows/Android/IoT platforms. I am interested in the areas of distributed systems, algorithms, computer vision, machine learning, networking, and robotics.

Prior to Stony Brook, I worked as a software engineer with the chief technology office of Wipro Technologies in Bangalore. My key projects included leading the development of web and desktop application for a webRTC based peer-to-peer real-time interactive tool, and working on real-time tracking and recognition of 3D objects under dynamic environment on a mobile platform. I also won several competitive programming contests at Wipro.

I completed my undergraduate engineering degree from Netaji Subhas Institute of Technology (University of Delhi) in 2015. During my time as an undergraduate student, I completed my research intern and worked part-time as a software lead at mLabs Research in New Delhi.

Outside of work, I like competitive programming, photography, jogging, music, and giving back to the community through volunteering and mentorship initiatives. I'm a movie buff and occasionally I play guitar.
