Hello there!

I'm Abhay Kashyap, a PhD candidate at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. I'm part Data Scientist and part Full-stack Web developer. I spend most of the day sleeping and come out at night to the Batcave where I devour unhealthy food and get high on caffeine. Occasionally, I find myself in a no-holds-barred wrestling match with problems in Machine Learning and text processing.

I love and live Hip-Hop and my dream is to make machines understand and learn how to write good Rap lyrics. As a pet project, I built Rapalytics, aimed to extract and visualize lyrical features from a large corpus of Rap music. Check out my projects page for other things I've built.
