I am an engineering manager for the “speech infrastructure” group at Facebook. My primary focus is to build software that enables speech recognition for Facebook’s products.

I started my career with building applications for Windows CE devices in India. I moved to Silicon Valley to join ValiCert (now Axway) – a security startup developing PKI software. At eBay I dabbled in eCommerce and online advertising. At Netflix my team built movie metadata platform. My career in speech recognition software started at Amazon – Lab126. I launched speech features for the Fire Phone and more recently built Alexa platform services for the Fire TV and third party partners.
