ABOUT

A lil bit about me

IMG_6046 2_edited.jpg

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.

THINGS I LOVE TO DO

DATA PRIVACY

507-5078871_understand-your-risks-and-pr

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".

COMPUTATIONAL NEUROSCIENCE

The human mind is one of the most complex and power effective computing device ever known. Unfortunately, it's also the least understood computing device. I look forward to working on enhancing this understanding as well as gaining inspiration for a mind inspired computing.

HUMAN COMPUTER INTERFACE

In the 21st century computing devices are one of the most interacted entities by humans. I am quite passionate about enhancing and simplifying the interactions in ways that would enable humans to leverage the cognition and time to more important things and to less mundane things.

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

TESTIMONIALS

Word on the Street

 

Priyanka was able to ramp up in an astonishingly short period of time. She read scientific papers as well as books on differential privacy to understand the nuances on running these protocols on device. Most importantly, she did a great job implementing local differential privacy schemes alongside the researchers inventing them. Finally, she's a great teammate and it was a joy to work with her.
