Hi there !! I'm Sanket Gupte. Born and raised in Vadodara, India. Currently residing in the beautiful city of Vancouver, BC.
Currently I work for Cloudfront - a part of Amazon Web Services as a Systems Development Engineer, where a normal day involves, setting up new Cloudfront locations, writing fancy programs and applications that work at scale to keep hundreds and thousands of servers running, and often times helping the team in putting out fires and saving the day :) Which is all quite fun :D
Before this I used to work as a Software Developer and Systems Administrator for the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD, USA. To be precise I used to work for the NeuroImaging branches of : National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) and National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA).
When I am not trying to write fun programs or managing fleets of servers for AWS, I use my penchant for thinking out of the box to task my brain into doing Research towards a Ph.D. in Computer Science. I work in the Embedded Systems and Networks Lab (ESNet) at the Department of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering of the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC)
I like to do a little bit of everything, and have several hobbies. Although, passion for food and propensity to grab every opportunity to travel to new places, top the list.
I am easily amicable , awkwardly funny at times, a big technoholic and a tad-metrosexual.
