Hi, I’m Priydarshi. I like to break things, and I like to build things. dryairship is an anagram of my first name, and my username on most online platforms.
I mostly work with computers, and love to develop exciting software. I also take a special interest in cybersecurity. I work as a Software Engineer at Optiver Europe. I have previously worked with Foyer, Amazon, The Linux Foundation, C3i Center and HackCave.
I studied at the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, where I graduated with a B.Tech. in Aerospace Engineering, and a total of five minors in Computer Science and Linguistics. While at IITK, I was associated with the Programming Club, the Quiz Club, and the Institute Aquatics Team.

I like learning languages and am currently working on my Spanish and Dutch. I also love playing sports, particularly swimming and water polo. I am trying to improve my skills in table tennis and pool by learning from my colleagues at Optiver.
