Shankar Venkitachalam

I am a first year M.S. student majoring in Computer Science at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.

Before joining UMass, I worked as a machine learning engineer in the Multimedia Research Group at Snapdeal, Bangalore. Previously, I worked as a software developer at Adobe Systems India on Adobe Captivate Prime, a newly-launched SaaS-based Learning Management System for enterprise. I received my Bachelor's in Computer Science from National Institute of Technology Calicut in July 2012.

I am actively looking for a summer internship in the areas of Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning. You can have a look at my resume here.
