Hi, I’m Pavan Kalyan, currently working towards my M.S in Computer Science at Columbia. Previously, I worked as a software engineer at Hevo Data as a SDE-II and have interned at Microsoft and TIF Labs.

I did my undergrad at Manipal Institute of Technology, Manipal in 2020. During college, I was part of Linux Users’ Group and Robotics and Circuits Club. I also do some competitive coding once in a while on sites like codeforces and atcoder.

I’m also interested in computer science research. More details here.

I am passionate about open source software and try to contribute regularly. Here are a few I have previously contributed to: Jackson, Depscloud, Trickster, GoCity, etc.

I enjoy playing video games and reading science fiction and fantasy books. My favorite author is Brandon Sanderson.
