Just like Schrödinger's cat that is both dead and alive at the same time until actualized, at any given moment you exist in a realm of infinite possibilities -- a tree graph, an inflection point of sorts, always marching towards a greater entropy. Right now, you could have been doing anything, but out of those infinite possibilities presented to you, 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 widely known as @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 19 y/o and I was born and brought up in India. I am a sophomore at UCLA where I am majoring in Computer Engineering with computational biology and genomics as my tech breadth and minoring in Mathematics. I am trying to deepen my understanding of Intelligence (both Artificial and Natural), Mathematics, Stochastic & Complex Systems, Emergence, Agents, and Morphology.

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:
