Gaurav Koley Internet Lurker, Poet, Creator of Gratia, Actively and Pdfvuer

Hey I'm Gaurav!

I'm a Software Developer and Web Science Researcher from Bangalore, India and I love Ruby on Rails and VueJs. I'm currently working at Microsoft R&D India where I performance engineer products. In my free time I work on Gratia with the Web Science Lab @ IIIT Bangalore, where we're making it easier to start, grow and nurture large online research communities.

If I'm not coding or tweeting, I'm likely lurking on reddit or writing poetry.
