Who am I?

My name is Sumit Kumar. For the last couple of years or so, I have been working as a NLU Research Scientist for Alexa AI at Amazon in Seattle, Washington. In the past, I have worked as a Lead Engineer at the Advanced R&D unit for Samsung Research Institute for about 5 years. I have more than 6 years of software development experience and a total of more than 8 years of work experience in the tech industry. Before finishing my Masters of Science in Analytics from the University of Chicago, I was a computer science undergraduate.

Outside of work, I love meeting new people, traveling to new destinations, and learning new cooking recipes. My favorite genres are pop-music, thriller movies, superhero comic books, productivity books, and open-world RPG action games. These days, I am also learning to play Ukulele and speak basic Mandarin.
