I am a first year Computer Science Masters student at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.

I have 2 years of engineering and applied machine learning experience at Microsoft Bing! where I built infrastructure to process high volume web-scale data. My major contribution was in Subintent Mining where I helped pushed 50+ Sub-intent models to production that impacted over 20 million Bing! queries.

I left Microsoft to co-found a small startup based out of Chandigarh, India called ‘Think Binary Academy’. At the academy, I conceptualized and instructed a specialized algorithms course for final year undergraduate students across North India. The entrepreneurial life was thrilling and involved a lot of learning.

On the lighter note, I enjoy early morning runs and occasional mountain treks. Weekly thriller/comedy movie with a big bucket of popcorns is a must. TV shows I can’t get enough of - Friends and Survivor.


Did I mention that I am actively looking for research internships for Summer 2018? If your company has some awesome ongoing projects in the field of Information Retrieval / Machine Learning, send me an email at ysingla@cs.umass.edu. Also check out my past projects and resume.
