I am a software development intern at Material Research Center under the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. The project involves continued development of the aNANt portal—touted to be the world's largest database of functional materials. It involves developing the dashboard, managing deployments and writing clear documentation for general and technical purposes.
Along with a friend of mine, we founded a food delivery app based start-up that catered to the food and delivery needs of students in college campuses. We built both an app for the consumers and a web-based admin interface for the restaurants. Currently, it is operating out of Manipal with more than 5000 downloads.
