My name is Sumit Kumar. I have over 10 years of software development and machine learning, AI research work experience in the tech industry. I am currently working as a Senior Machine Learning Engineer at Meta. My main focus at work is on search, retrieval, ranking, recommendations applications.
Previously, I worked as a Senior Machine Learning Engineer at TikTok, USA.

Outside of work, I love meeting new people, traveling to new destinations, and learning new cooking recipes.
