Hi, I'm Ashish
I’m an engineer and designer with over 10 years of experience designing, building, and maintaining technology products. I'm fascinated by design, systems, and applying my craft to improving scientific progress.
I’ve worn multiple hats, initially as a research fellow at the National Cancer Institute and then transitioning to engineering and product in fintech, travel, cybersecurity, insurance, and scientific publishing.
I joined scite.ai as the first engineering hire in 2020 and currently serve as the CTO to improve how people discover, evaluate, and do better research.
The debian build of nmap is often 1-2 years behind. If you're using Ubuntu (personally, or in Docker), here's how you can use alien to convert and install the latest RPM package.
I was particularly fascinated by privacy preserving technologies, and reflected on innovations around federated learning during my trip to NeurIPS in Vancouver.
I've always loved art and photography; this essay is a consolidation of some of my notes on varieties of generative art from a number of international artists.
