Welcome to my digital home.

My name is Amit. I am an engineer and dabble at different things. Currently, I am doing my Masters in Computer Science at the University of North Carolina Greensboro. Go Spartans! I previously did my Bachelors, also in Computer Science, at BRAC University.

My research areas of interest are Data Science, Machine Learning, and Natural Language Processing. I am also trying to learn more about decentralized finance and bioinformatics. I write about things when I am trying to learn something new as a way to internalize the concepts. This website houses all of my writings.

I am absolutely captivated by the power of telling stories with films. Needless to say, I watch a lot of films and documentaries. Some of my favorite directors are Denis Villeneuve, Wes Anderson, Yorgos Lanthimos, Stanley Kubrick, and David Fincher. Some of my intellectual heroes are Richard Feynman, Carl Sagan, Christopher Hitchens, Rabindranath Tagore, and Satyajit Ray among others. 

Let’s talk about books. Some of my favorite fiction books are The Foundation by Isaac Asimov, Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger, To Kill a Mocking Bird by Harper Lee, Animal Farm by George Orwell, and The Stranger by Albert Camus. I am currently reading The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. As for Non-fictions, Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari, The Sixth Extinction by Elizabeth Kolbert, The Denial of Death by Ernest Becker, The Way of Men by Jack Donovan, and The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins are a few that comes to mind.

Get in touch for work or if you found anything here interesting. You can also sign up for my occasional newsletters for updates on what I am up to these days.
