I'm a researcher at Microsoft Research India, based in Bangalore. Previously I was at MIT for undergrad and grad school, where I studied computer science. As for housing -- I tend to be really clean and quiet as a roommate. I stayed in the same place for 8 years of graduate school, and maintained an excellent relationship with my landlord throughout. I also filled many vacancies in my own apartment, so I can imagine what it takes to play host on airbnb!
