A STUDENT, CREATING THE FUTURE

Engineer - Dancer - Daughter

 

ABOUT

A lil bit about me

I’m Priyanka Mathikshara. My unique second name stands for the blend of the names of both my parents-True Dedicators. Being born in a hardworking family I grew up watching them striving hard to reach their goals which might seem really huge and impossible, with absolute confidence, and achieving them. This environment had inculcated in me the ambition and aspiration to change the term “IM POSSIBLE” to “IS POSSIBLE". I aim at creating a better experience for people, enhancing their lives and increasing productivity by enabling intelligent technologies.

 

EDUCATION

Alma Mater

SACRED HEART, CHURCH PARK

June 2003 - April 2016

Passed out with 96% in higher secondary school examination. Was an active member of the debate club and received merit and all-rounder certificates for both academics extracurricular activites. Was given the best out going student award for the computer science department.

STANFORD UNIVERSITY

June 2018 - August 2018

Attended the summer school at Stanford University for the courses "Introduction to the probability for computer scientists"  and "Introduction to statistical learning". Also worked at NASA at that time under Stanford professors on "KickSat - 2".

VELLORE INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY

June 2016 - June 2020

Pursuing my B.Tech degree on Electronics and Computer Engineering. Was the Program Representative of ECM from 2017 to 2018. Also the founding menber of IEEE Robotics and Automation Society VIT Chennai Chapter.

 

EXPERIENCE

Where I've worked

October 2019 - July 2020

GOOGLE

Worked as an intern with the Privacy and Data Protection team (PDPO) and Corporate Operations Engineering team (CorpEng).

July 2019 - August 2019

NATIONAL UNIVERSITY OF SINGAPORE

Worked on a multi-path TCP based privacy breach avoidance system for IP cameras.

July 2018 - August 2018

NASA

Worked on the GPS part of "KICK SAT 2" at Stanford University under Prof. Zachary Manchester. The KickSat-2 mission tests 100 Sprite ChipSats demonstrating that tiny, massively distributed satellites using commercial off-the-shelf technology can work in space.

June 2016 - July 2016

PI BEAM LABS

Interned at the startup Pi Beam Labs at IITM research park. Pi Beam Labs produce industrial electrical tricycle for load carrying. Built a datalogger for the system using the STM32 microcontroller.

 

MY SKILLS

What I can do

DATA PRIVACY

Data is the most invaluable resource of the day. Proper and smart use of data could lead to enhanced livelihood, save lives, etc etc etc... In the past I have worked with NUS on privacy breaches in IP cameras. I have also worked with google on the most simple yet fasicnating - "Local Differential Privacy".

COMMUNICATION & IOT

The fancy term internet of things fascinated me a couple of years ago. The fact that we could enable dormant yet seemingly useful devices to leverage their potential to the fullest was astonishing. I have worked on quite a few hobby projects experimenting with the low power capabilities of various protocols and frameworks.

DEEP LEARNING

Intelligent learning systems and their potential to society is incredibly fascinating. In the past, I have explored some DL concepts like neural memory, sequential models and have attempted to apply them for gesture recognition in HCI based applications.

Practice makes a person perfect,
But converting mere projects to useable products makes us successful engineers

 

HOBBY PROJECTS

Worked on these just out of the curiosity to see how they work and fail :D

TESTIMONIALS

Word on the Street

 

As a faculty advisor, I had the opportunity to be associated with Ms. Priyanka who pursues her bachelor’s degree in Electronics and Computer Engineering. She is highly consistent in her academics right from the first semester. She never restricts herself just to academics but tries to engage herself in other skill-building activities. She tries to orient herself in different knowledge areas like Machine learning, Automation, Analytics etc. To quote an example for this, I would recall her summer school at Stanford University and her interest to experiment things at NASA. Hence I am proud to say that she is a multidimensional person with clear focus and vision on her career path. I extend my wholehearted wishes to Priyanka for her bright future.
