I make videos about tech and Android: https://www.youtube.com/user/rpandey1234
I'm an Android engineer working on Facebook Portal. I was at Pinterest for 2.5 years, where I primarily worked on the commerce product. Prior to that, I was a founding engineer at a recommender systems startup that came from my lab work at Stanford. In addition to Android, I like working on projects involving video tech or recommendation systems.
In my free time, I really enjoy baked goods and teaching (sometimes as the same time). I've taught with (CS198 at Stanford and Codepath). I play soccer, frisbee, and tennis.
