Who Am I?

Hey! I'm Viren Khandal. I’m currently a second year student at UC Berkeley, double majoring in Computer Science and Applied Math. Outgoing and detail-oriented, I enjoy designing and developing multi-platform applications using a multitude of programming frameworks and love exploring various new technologies. Building a strong intuition of software development and data analysis has peaked my interest in machine learning and artificial intelligence.

Outside of computer science, I enjoy playing chess and solving Rubik’s cubes!
