About Me ✌🏽

Welcome to my website! I’m Yash, a recent graduate from UC San Diego. This March, I graduated with highest honors (summa cum laude) while pursuing a double major in Data Science and Cognitive Science: Machine Learning.

I’m originally from San Ramon, CA (SF Bay Area 🌉). In my free time, I enjoy traveling, exploring new restaurants, cooking, and following/playing sports (go Niners and Warriors)!

One of my passions is teaching and mentorship. I served as an Instructional Assistant for several undergraduate data science courses and led workshops for students interested in data science. Check out my workshops!

I’m always looking to learn something new and connect with others! Feel free to contact me or connect on LinkedIn!
