Asmita Poddar

I am currently an ML Software Engineer at Amazon as a part of the Alexa team. I work on productionising models built for Text-to-Speech problems within Alexa. Earlier, I was at Amazon Web Services (AWS), where I built features using various AWS technologies to provide Apache Kafka as a fully managed service on AWS.

I have graduated from Green Templeton College at the University of Oxford with a Masters (M.Sc.) degree in Computer Science. Prior to that, I was a Research Engineer at the Institute of Data Science, National University of Singapore. I have completed my Bachelor in Technology (B. Tech) degree in Computer Science & Engineering from the National Institute of Technology, Rourkela, India.

I am deeply drawn to the idea of multi-disciplinary collaboration. I am passionate about using machine learning to build large scale products and services.
Today, deploying ML models to production is one of the biggest challenges that the industry faces.
With my multi-facetted experience in machine learning and software engineering, I am keen to build the models, tools and platforms to put ML powered products in the hands of customers seamlessly.
