About Me

I am a graduate student in computer science at Virginia Tech. I started graduate school in August 2017 with a focus on machine learning and natural language processing. In the summer of 2018, I interned in the Messenger team at Facebook working on dialog systems and coreference resolution. Come June 2019, I'll be working there full time!

Before starting graduate school, I was a software engineer at PayPal in Chennai, India working on cloud-agnostic DevOps. In a previous life, I also majored in Biological Sciences!

I blog about technology, music, cooking, and occasionally politics. Feel free to mail me at ashish [at] ashishb.me or follow me on social media.
