Hello! I'm Anannya Uberoi, a Software Development Engineer at Amazon, Madrid. I grew up in New Delhi, India. I graduated with an honor's degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology (IIIT), Delhi. A few areas I enjoy learning about and working on include machine learning, natural language processing, information retrieval, and image analysis. My bachelor's thesis focussed on developing a generalizable facial spoofing detection algorithm, undertaken under the supervision of Dr. Richa Singh and Dr. Mayank Vatsa at the Image Analysis and Biometrics (IAB) lab, IIIT Delhi. I am particularly interested in projects that have a tangible social impact and are channeled through a customer-oriented life cycle.
Throughout my undergrad, I have been periodically exposed to various experiences, the most focal one being my selection into the Google Women Techmakers Scholarship program, where I was the youngest among the 75 scholars from across Asia Pacific. The scholars' retreat at Google, Campus Seoul, South Korea opened up my outlook greatly, allowing for an influx of fresh perspectives from fellow scholars - coming from diverse professional and academic backgrounds.
On a personal note, I am a published poet and a lunchtime philosopher with an ardent love for travel and literature. I am a poetry editor at The Bookends Review. I won the 6th Singapore Poetry Contest, Ayaskala National Poetry Writing Month challenge, and was nominated for Best of Net, 2020. An avid traveller and nature enthusiast, I log my experiences from unconventional journeys on paper. The complete list of my publications can be found in the literary section.
