About

Research Software Engineer 2 at Microsoft | Co-founder of Videolator, the Imagine Cup 2013 WW-Winner | Building great products is my true passion!

5+ years of experience, currently working as Research Software Engineer 2 at Microsoft, working on Dynamics 365 AI Solutions – Customer Care, an AI customer support chat bot, helping customers solve issues before escalating to human agents, powering Microsoft, HP & Macy’s.
In a Microsoft internal Garage Hackathon, as a Program Manager, I led a team of 3 developers & 1 designer and won the “1st Place” award for “Bing Code Answer” early prototype.

Before joining Microsoft, I co-founded “Videolator”, a mobile app that gets you the most relevant video to what you are reading by taking a photo of it. I was the first Product Manager, responsible for shaping product vision, defining user scenarios & prioritizing features. I successfully launched the app and won (3+) awards including the “Microsoft Imagine Cup 2013 Worldwide Award”.

Building great products that millions could use is my true passion.
