Just like Schrödinger's cat that is both dead and alive at the same time (unless of course you open the box to check it, and actualize one of the possibilities into an outcome), at any given moment you exist in a realm of infinite possibilities -- always marching towards a greater entropy. Right now, you could have been doing anything, but out of those infinite possibilities, you chose to visit my little corner of the web, how honoured I am! Welcome to my corner of the internet!

Let me introduce myself! I am Viraj Chhajed, more popularly @VirajCz on the web, and though I feel words are too restrictive to describe myself, I like to call myself a craftsman and a truthseeker, a wanderer and a wonderer. I find extreme pleasure in discovering, learning and building new things.

Right now, I am 18 y/o and I was born and brought up in India. I am student at UCLA where I am majoring in Computer Engineering with computational biology and genomics as my tech breadth and minoring in Bioinformatics. I am trying to deepen my understanding of AI, Computational Biology, Genetics and Synthetic Bio .

I love intellectually stimulating challenges and find myself constantly gravitating towards abstract and fundamental, philosophical and scientific questions about self, consciousness and the universe.

Right now I am:

(last updated: 22nd April, 2023)

In past I have worked on building Synthetic Media and text-to-video generation software at Basch.io (cofounder); built Algoz.xyz - onchain bot prevention algorithm (co-builder); did B2B SaaS growth at BridgeUp.com (early employee); built WebAR and IOS AR projects at CemtrexLabs.com (software engineering & AR intern); built Vizardlab, an AR VR agency for real estate companies (founder).

I am very very curious and I love exploring things, some of my current Interests: AI, RL, genomics, proteins, synthetic bio, calisthenics, Batman, superheroes and genetic engineering.
