Hello, I'm Reeva, a full-stack software engineer with a strong passion for developing innovative AI-powered software products. I am currently a Software Engineer at Microsoft, after graduating with a Masters in Computer Science from UCSB.

During my graduate studies, I had the opportunity to collaborate with Prof. Xifeng Yan on an exciting project at the intersection of AI and Healthcare. While at UCSB, I also served as a Teaching Assistant for courses like CS32 (Object-Oriented Programming) and CS64 (Computer Organization). In addition, I had the opportunity to intern at Microsoft, contributing to the Cloud + AI team, an experience that ultimately led me to my current role.

Before starting my graduate studies, I gained valuable experience as a Senior Software Engineer at Comviva, a global leader in mobility software solutions.
