Hi, I’m Ashish Sharma. I was born in Seattle, Washington, but currently live in the Bay Area in California, where I graduated UC Berkeley with a masters in computer science in 2008. After many academic and personal projects revolving around data compression, I decided to put my specialized knowledge to use. Over the past decade data compression has only become more important, with the growth of big data, artificial intelligence, and high resolution video. I find myself becoming more passionate about data compression and all its applications, and love working with businesses that could benefit from its use. I can’t wait to see what other things this technology could be used for, and how it can help accelerate us into the future!
