What people say about me

Sourced from my LinkedIn profile

I rarely come across real talents who stand out like Rohan. I had the pleasure of working with Rohan for 18 months at the Tesco, collaborating on big data project. Rohan’s ability to pickup requirement and execute it with perfection, during course of execution he brings lot of innovative ideas, he is always ready to put all his energy and time to get the job done. As a team member Rohan earns my highest recommendation.

I met Rohan in 2017, when he came for a few months in my lab (LIRMM-University of Montpellier, France) to work for an internship on a visualization project. He did a great job. He perfectly understood the end users (epidemiologists) needs, and he designed and developed a sound application. Epidemiologists really liked it - they found it powerful and currently use it in their daily work. Also, we published a paper at VINCI 2018 presenting the approach - VINCI is an international conference on Information Visualization. It was a great pleasure for me to collaborate with Rohan and I highly recommend him.

Rohan developed the ExploroBot Application during his time at DIT. In a short time frame, he developed a sophisticated application with multiple layers of logic, UI and Data management. He has an excellent work ethic and is a pleasure to work with. I recommend him thoroughly and hope, at some point in the future, to be work with him again.

During GSoC 2016 I was Rohan’s mentor. Rohan showed both an eagerness to learn and exceptional management skills. Even before GSoC started, Rohan contributed to our code and made the best proposal of all the ones we received. Once GSoC started he made sure to reach the set goals and deadlines with only little guidance. Since all the organizational aspects were taken care of by him, I could focus on reviewing his code contributions. He was able to quickly deliver the features that were requested leaving plenty of time to refine the code further. My comments were always received very positively and I did not have to make any comments twice. Rohan picked up new concepts every week without much effort and with great enthusiasm. It was a pleasure to work with him..

Rohan worked under my supervision in ValueFirst, on a product named "Revide". During this time, from design to development, he worked very actively and smartly. His quick grasping and innovative ideas helped us to develop our product and make it more functional. His willingness to work will help him in future.
