Hi, I'm Nikhil

A product manager/developer working in the bay area.
I also take photos.


I currently work at a small startup called Shogun. We're a financial technology company looking to optimize the average American's largest asset, their home. We're hiring!


I was part of Slack first intern class in the summer of 2015. As a front-end engineer, I built out the user groups feature and did some product management on the enterprise product.

Delta Lab @ Northwestern University

As an undergraduate at Northwestern University, I researched in the Delta Lab under the supervision of Professor Haoqi Zhang. We explored methods of breaking down complex projects into actionable plans through crowdsourcing.

Knight Lab @ Northwestern University

As a technology fellow at the Knight Lab, I researched novel methods of adding context to long-form articles using NLP and knowledge graphs. The Knight Lab is a journalism technology lab funded by the Knight Foundation.


In the summer of 2014, I interned as a web developer on Groupon's homepage team. I built out features that resulted in 2 million dollars in marginal monthly revenue.

What I do

I've always been interested in the intersection of people and code. I spend time thinking about how to use technology to guide people through complex problems.

Front-end Web

React, Redux, Node, Sass is my preferred stack. Javascript is the name of my game.

Graphic Design

I've been designing for 6+ years. I'm great at Sketch and familiar with Adobe CS.

HCI Research

The human-centered design process is key to my work. Iterating quickly to learn is what I do best.


I have TAed for over 2000 students and taught a 300 level class on network security.

Product Mangement

I currently PM for a team of 5 engineers and am learning the art of balancing business and engineering needs.


I like taking ideas from 0 to 1. There are many hats I am comfortable in.

Get in touch

You can find me wondering around San Francisco, Chicago and occasionally an international airport.
