Saksham Bassi

I am pursuing MS in Computer Science at Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences - New York University. My focus of studies is primarily on Computer Vision, Deep Learning and Algorithms. Previously, I was working as a Data Scientist II at Glance, InMobi where I worked in the Personalisation team to enhance exploration of social media feed using Representation Learning models. Prior to this, I spent time at HSBC as a Software Engineer, where I worked on building monitoring architecture and improved backend of financial applications.

During my undergrad, I was a Research Intern at Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Bangalore where I worked on time-series analysis and modeling, and computer vision with Prof. A. S. Vasudeva Murthy. I have also had the fortunate opportunity to work as a Research Intern at The Inter-University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics where I worked on building Deep Learning models for classification of variable stars.

I completed my bachelors at the Pune Institute of Computer Technology, University of Pune in Information Technology, where I was advised by Dr. Shweta Dharmadhikari.
