With the histrionic advance in the technological world, itwould be difficult to play down the significance of Computer Science in thebusiness and technological world today. After working in the industry for 3+years, I have realized the need to pursue further education in Computer Scienceand Engineering at the Ohio State University in order to realize my careerobjectives. I am a keen enthusiast of your research centres and facilities,which I consider to be critical in attaining greater academic excellence. I graduated with a Bachelor of Technology inComputer Science and Engineering from Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha Universityand attained first class honors (73.5%).During my undergraduate, I have takensubjects which have greatly enhanced my knowledge of computer science. Thesesubjects include C, Algorithms and Data Structures, Java, Linux, C++,Programming paradigms (OOP), Computer Architecture Computer Networks, DatabaseManagement, Network Security and key concepts of International Business.
I havedone 2 internships in DRDO, premier defence agency in India. The 2 internshipshave given me the practical understanding of computer science concepts as wellas opportunity to IT job duties. In the final year of undergraduate, I havedeveloped projects on Digital Signature and Intrusion Detection in WirelessSensor Network. Armedwith above knowledge and background, I got a job in Cognizant in 2014. Duringmy tenure in Cognizant, I got a chance to work with leading clients in theMedia industry, namely Warner Bros LexisNexis. I got exposure to various techskills such as Oracle, XML, XPath, jQuery, Html, NoSQL Databases, WebTechnologies (spring, Servlet), ORM Hibernate and Web Services (SOAP and REST). My firstassignment was with Lexis Nexis. The Lexis Nexis is one of the leading solutionproviders of legal documents for law firms and business.
I was working on theLexis Advance product. This product is extensively used by law firms andgraduates. This product is a new version of online legal search. I was involvedin application development and maintenance of this product.

We have to refactor one of the applications ofWarner Bros to the new platform (Mark Logic). The application was developed onthe SAP MDM platform and Mark logic as the database. Being a junior member ofthe team, the challenging task was to understand the existing system andimplement those functionalities into the new system. For a betting,understanding of the application, I have undergone training and discussion withstakeholders.
After various discussions with stakeholders, we refactored theexisting application and successfully delivered to the client.
