Professional Development Director

Harsh Upadhyay

goa_picI’m a Professional Masters Student in the Computer Science Department, specializing in A. I. and Robotics. I grew up in India where I did my bachelors at NIT Calicut. For the next 3 years I worked for a Wall Street giant, developing trading and risk management software in the bonds market (hint: it starts with ‘Gold…’).
Looking at all the data there and the bleeding edge of technology in use (not to mention, the realization that there is still so much to learn!) sparked my interest in Machine Learning, and that brought me to Rice!
Currently, I serve as the student President of the Engineering Professional Masters Program Club and being a GSA officer gives me the super exciting opportunity to bring the PhD and Master’s communities closer. I believe that each can benefit from the best practices used by the other to develop professionally.
I’m always on the lookout for new ideas and knowledge so if you have some awesome productivity tip, the best advice you ever got, any form of feedback, suggestions, new ideas for events, any trivia, Game of Thrones, Computer Games, Anime, Comics etc. or if you just need an avid listener, hit me up!
