I am currently working as an Assistant Systems Engineer – Trainee at Tata Consultancy Services Ltd., Pune.
Previously I worked as a Research Intern at Gade Autonomous Systems Pvt. Ltd., Mumbai. I developed Windows-based applications using Microsoft Kinect. My first project involved a hand-gesture based picture viewer. You can find a demo here: V’Me (A Gesture Based Picture Viewer).
I’ve completed my Bachelors in Electronics and Telecommunication from K.I.T’s College of Engineering, Kolhapur. Prior to this, I completed junior college from Late Sri P. B. Jog Junior College, Pune and schooling from St. Xavier’s High School, Kolhapur.
I am passionate about Reading novels and Watching movies. I also play Table Tennis and Chess in whatever spare time I get (which is very less). However all this takes backseat when the mood for Counter Strike is in the air. Then it all comes down to hardcore gaming!
Academically, my areas of interests are:
- Embedded Systems
- Embedded Hardware/Software Design
- Human Robot Interaction
Here is a casual picture that was captured when some friends and I visited Udupi, Karnataka.
PS: I go by the username karanjthakkar on the internet. So if you want to look for me, use that. You’ll come up with something that links to me.
