Hi, I'm Keshav Sivakumar!
Hi I am Keshav, a high school senior, living in Singapore. I have a passion and talent for numbers, and pretty much all logic dominated fields such as computer science or economics - a passion that has dominated my life and interests for a long time now. I love experimenting with ambitious and mostly ridiculous ideas, because even if they don't come to fruition, they make for an exciting journey.
Evidenced by this website itself - Foodsavr has been my main focus over the past few years. The hybrid mobile application for both iOS and android, coded in angularJS and Ionic, connects restaurants and customers, allowing them to post discounts to save food near the end of the day.

Intern - Noggin Asia
: Interned at Noggin Asia and helped build part of their front end pod browser
: Summer program at MIT centred around entrepreneurship, an amazing crash course on how to build a startup.
My interests regarding sports is mainly cricket. I have represented Singapore U-16 and U-19 cricket teams in international tournaments against neighbouring countries, though I do enjoy squash in my free time.
Other topics that really interest me are behavioural economics and psychology - topics that deal with how we perceive the world around us. I found phenomenology to be a very interesting part of philosophy also and have pursued online courses on these subjects.
