Welcome to Deepak’s home on the Web.

It always amazes me how these remain popular, because they are so obscure, and in my mind, so ancient.

My Favorites

Here are some of my personal favorites:


At work, I develop end-to-end machine learning solutions. I have experience with data pipelines, distributed parallel programming systems, cloud platforms, and model operations. I can work with high-level programming languages like Python as well as lower-level languages like C and (x86) assembly. Recently (2020) a graduate of Data Science at UC Berkeley, I also hold a Master’s degree in Computer Science from Ohio State (2008) and a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from PESIT, Bangalore, India (2003). I have worked in 3 startups and 2 large companies, in Bangalore and SF Bay Area. I currently live in Mountain View, California.

During my free time, I like to read. I gravitate towards psychology, philosophy, and literary drama. I also enjoy books on nature, global topics and trends, strategy, and of course, technology.

During the pandemic years of 2020-21, I did pro-bono machine-learning research for sustainability with faculty at UC Berkeley. I have experience with large-scale machine learning on geospatial data including optical, multispectral and SAR remote-sensing data, regression and classification models, time-series analysis, and deep learning. I recently published a research article on global irrigation extent, and gave a talk at Google Geo for Good summit. My data-science portfolio.

Recruiters, please note: I respectfully refuse to do “Leetcode” interviews. I am interested, however, in a real-world problem in your company and seeing whether I can help you with it.

How can I help you?

Write to me for 1-1 consulting and coaching.
