About Me

I have over 8 years of experience as a software engineer in Morgan Stanley. I am a Vice President in the Equity Swaps Trading team in Mumbai. I have built and supported applications that serve multiple front, middle & back office business operations for the DSP business of Morgan Stanley.

I am currently running a multi-year cross-divisional project to radically scale the DSP business from ~10 million swaps to ~100 trillion. This project involves collaborating with 100+ systems across the Institutional Securities Tech division to seamlessly achieve the deadline for scaling the DSP business.

My primary professional role has been to design & develop scalable services. I have also built end-to-end websites and applications outside of work and I am a proficient Full Stack Developer.

I am highly passionate about teaching and mentoring budding technologists. I ran a unique campus connect cum technical guidance event called Code Kata for Morgan Stanley. I have mentored students both personally and professionally as part of Morgan Stanley's college mentoring program.

I am an avid reader of thrillers, murder mysteries and science-fiction novels. I enjoy learning a wide range of technology paradigms, languages, frameworks and tools.
