Hi! I am Aviral. I love building data systems that act as engines to fuel the higher analytics: Machine Learning, Business Intelligence and AI. I want to give this world a tool as impactful as some of the best ones in the Data ecosystem: RocksDB, DynamoDB, Spark, Hadoop, Airflow, K8s. I am an ardent believer of Agile methodology, and try to follow it not in just software engineering but in most of my day to day life.

Currently, I am working full-time as a Data Engineering Intern at Redhat, in the AICoE team. My primary work includes making the data storage more efficient and improving the data access so as to empower the AI and ML engineers in the organisation.

I am also working part-time on two research projects: RUML and improving Apache Flink. Earlier, I was involved in setting up the data infrastructure at Atlan. My preliminary work included building a Data Repository and building ETL workflows for visualization platforms.

Few activities for my survivial: soccer, cricket, music, reading, and of course, writing.
