My name is Karmanya Aggarwal. I’m a machine learning engineer and researcher. This means I spend most of my time complaining about my lack of compute.

I’m currently working on getting my masters from The University of Pennsylvania and a research assistant with Duncan Watt’s Lab at Penn, where I’m working to make the methods used in computational social science more rigorous.

In the past I’ve worked at Gramener, IIIT Delhi’s MIDAS Research Lab and DoctorC

This is my corner of the internet, and will essentially host a bunch of random things I think about, and occasionally some technical things as well.

The title of this website reflects my progress in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu - where I’m the only person I know that needed to get knee surgery before I got a blue belt. I go by calmdownkarm on most platforms. Feel free to email me if you want to chat about NLP or social media.

Shoutout to Brady Salz from whom I’m stealing most of this website
