About Myself

I'm a Data & Applied Scientist at Microsoft, working with the Bing Autosuggestions team. I completed my B.Tech from IIT Bombay with a Major degree in Mechanical Engineering and a Minor degree in Computer Science & Engineering. I have a keen interest in NLP, Deep Learning & Blockchain, and love to develop interesting products using cutting-edge technologies.

I Paint 🎨. I Sing 🎀. And love listening to some soothing music during leisure (& even while studying πŸ˜„). I like to learn new stuff & am always up for challenges! I love interacting with people and understand a situation through various perspectives.

Being an enthusiatic programmer πŸ’», I am always ready to discuss interesting projects. I also love participating in hackathons and have won several prizes (full list here).

β€œTezan worked with me as part of Google Summer of Code. One thing that was clear from the beginning when he submitted his proposal was his attention to details. Out of the many proposals we received this year he was one of the top candidates and was selected to work with us.

The first month he designed an API with feedback from us, and also learned how build and work with the PEcAn system (a complex system that consists of many micro services that interact with each other). During this time he also learned how to work with the R programming language.

The second and third months he spend time on implementing all the features from his proposal, including a library that will interact with the PEcAn system. Many of the users of the PEcAn system have already shown interest in being able to use both the API and the library to do their research in the future.

I highly recommend Tezan for his ability to understand the problem, create a solution and implement the solution. His implementation skills and communications skills are excellent and he is a great person to be working with.”

β€œTezan has been a phenomenal asset to the team. His ability to analyze a problem, present solutions, and execute tasks in a time pressured environment has been outstanding. His ability to take direction and analyze a solution that incorporates the bigger picture is that of someone with 10+ years of experience in the field. By far, Tezan's best technical asset is his ability to quickly grasp new concepts and understand the relevant portions of new techniques for the task at hand. He has worked with us and has accomplished all of his projects before their deadlines and I would highly recommend him as an asset to any team.”

β€œTezan has been good to work with. He is result-oriented, responsible and technically sound intern and learns from his mistakes. He works hard, and I would recommend him to institutions and other companies for his quick adaptability & analytical skills.”
