Hello, I'm Kailash Budhathoki ☺ from Nepal. I'm currently pursuing my Masters in Computer Science at Universität des Saarlandes, Saarbrücken, Germany and also working as a "studentische Hilfskraft" at Exploratory Data Analysis group at Cluster of Excellence "Multimodal Computing and Interaction" under Dr. Jilles Vreeken since October 1, 2014. Before that, I worked as a studentische Hilfskraft at Database & Information Systems Group at Max-Planck-Institut für Informatik under Prof. Dr. Rainer Gemulla for 9 months. Just before arriving here in Germany, I worked as a software developer for LogPoint from February, 2011 to September, 2013.
I completed my Bachelor's Degree in Computer Engineering in 2010AD from Pulchowk Campus, Tribhuvan University, Nepal.
I aspire to dig deep into the chasm of Information Retrieval & Data Mining. I have greatly benefited from the free courses & materials available online. Among many, Introduction to Algorithms (OCW MIT), Machine Learning (Coursera) are the ones I enjoyed the most. I have been so touched by the last lecture of Randy Pausch: Achieving Your Childhood Dreams & Walter Lewin: For the love of Physics. You might find this 3 minute talk delivered by Derek Sivers in TED conference interesting - How to start a movement.
