hi, i'm arshi.

I’m an associate software engineer at Moody’s Analytics, part of the MATR 2-year rotation program focused on leadership and technical skills. I’m on the Innovation team in the Accelerator, identifying new business opportunities and rapidly prototyping them using Lean Startup techniques.

I’m from the SF Bay Area (+ the biggest Warriors fan you’ll ever meet). I graduated from Santa Clara University in June of 2019 with a B.S. in Computer Science & Engineering and a minor in Mathematics. Fun fact: I graduated in 3 years!

My education at Santa Clara University has developed me into an extremely compassionate and holistic engineer. I care deeply about ethics in engineering, making it a mission to be ethical in my work and design all products with these values in mind.

  • Music is my biggest passion. Always got Kanye, Kendrick and Drake on repeat. Fresh playlist rec here
  • Been playing the piano since age 6
  • Fitness & wellness are a big part of my lifestyle
  • Love to play & watch tennis. I was on the women’s tennis team in high school
  • Really into streetwear and fashion. Catch me with fresh kicks 24/7
  • Love to read. Goal is to read 1 book every week

Here are a few of my featured projects. I have many interests — filter by type!


Literature contains an incredible amount of wisdom that has shaped me into who I am today. The following is a list of some books that have taught me a great deal on life and inspired me to look at the world in a different light. Books with a star are must-reads.

I get much more value out of these if I have a conversation with others, so I’m always open to discuss thoughts. I'd love to hear from you if you have any recommendations as well.
