Achyudh Ram

Hi! I am Achyudh Ram, a research master's student at the University of Waterloo working at the intersection of deep learning and software research. I collaborate with the Data Systems Group and the Software Architecture Group. I have previously interned at Microsoft Research, Intuit, and TU Delft.

I am interested in building intelligent systems that aid in the software engineering process, by bringing together diverse fields like software analytics, machine learning, information retrieval and social networks.

I write about some of the interesting aspects of my projects in my blog. If you are after a comprehensive list of my work, take a look at my curriculum vitae or GitHub profile.
