Hi, I'm Junaid

Welcome to my website.

I am an engineer, researcher, and technology enthusiast. I have bachelors and masters degrees in Engineering from National Institute of Technology (NIT) Srinagar. Recently, I completed a PhD degree in Artificial Intelligence from NIT Srinagar under the supervision of  Prof. Mohammad Abid Bazaz.

My research work mainly involves development and integration of various artificial intelligence and deep learning techniques to achieve advances in computational intelligence with applications in NLP, generative modelling, and machine learning.

Currently, at StartUs Insights, I lead the AI team that enhances a Big Data & AI-powered platform, servicing major corporate partners by deploying advanced machine learning models. My role involves fine-tuning and deploying large language models , vision models, embedding models, audio generation models, and other such AI technologies to get the best of the massive data available with the company and build AI tools such as chatbots, summarizers, data analtics systems, feature extraction systems, and content generators.

I strongly believe that the future of technology will be at the intersection of artificial intelligence and human intelligence.
