Who am I?

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. I also worked as a NLU Research Scientist for Alexa AI at Amazon in Seattle, Washington for more than 4 years, and as a Lead Engineer at the Advanced R&D unit for Samsung Research Institute for about 5 years. 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, do Salsa dance and speak basic Mandarin.
