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.
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.
A few things about me:
- Graduated with distinction from Netaji Subhas Institute of Technology, University of Delhi, New Delhi. Awarded the university merit scholarship for four successive years.
- Invited for onsite Google interview after securing the All India rank 17 and Asia Pacific rank 122 in Google APAC 2015 University Graduate Test.
- Authored two research papers at international conferences and published in IEEE Xplore.
- Officially reviewed two technical books published by Packt Publishing.
- Completed the pilot online course offered by MIT as part of their MITx (now edX) initiative, and was invited to the first exclusive MIT alumni meet (2014) in New Delhi.
- Participated in an exclusive Social Innovation Hackathon by Code for India at Rastrapathi Bhavan, New Delhi as part of Festival of Innovations 2016 in the presence of the President of India “Shri Pranab Mukherjee”. The solutions developed during the hackathon are now being used by the Government of Delhi to tackle social challenges.
