Hi, I'm Nikhil! I'm a software/product engineer excited about making open-source more accessible 🚀, creating technology to empower communities ✨, and designing for healthcare + education 📚.

Currently, I research accessible + ethical ML and build infra for scalable AI explainability at TruEra.

I recently graduated with a double major in CS + Statistics and a minor in Applied Sciences and Engineering from UNC Chapel Hill, where I researched ML models to predict early-stage Alzheimer's 🔬 and led student teams to build solutions for non-profits via CS + Social Good. I also directed / mentored a few hackathons 🖥️ along the way!
