Hi there! My name is Pravi Devineni (my ‘official’ name is Pravallika, but nobody really calls me that). I received my Ph.D in Computer Science from the University of California Riverside. I am broadly interested in data science and currently apply machine learning and natural language processing to business applications. After spending the last several years in academia breaking down research questions, I am currently focused on acquiring more engineering skills and plan on showcasing my learnings on this blog.

In my free time, I spend majority of my time hiking and cooking with my husband and our dog. I also enjoy mentoring and teaching computer science to young kids.
