Gautam Mittal

Student at UC Berkeley

I’m at UC Berkeley studying Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. I enjoy building things, cycling, and music of all genres. I am interested in real-world applications of deep learning, data systems, computer- and human-generated art, hackathons, jazz, and the design of products and systems.

All of my code is on GitHub and I occasionally tweet. I also have a resumé. I enjoy meeting new people and am happy to talk about almost anything — feel free to reach out by sending me an email.
