Originally from Kerala, India, Tinju had a love of problem-solving from a young age. Growing up, this interest deepened and led to her being the first individual in her family to enter the world of technology. It was with much excitement that upon graduation, with the support of her family, Tinju began her career as a software engineer!
Tinju nurtured her curiosity by learning new skills as she explored opportunities and experienced life in five different countries. After moving to Sydney in 2015, she started pursuing her master's degree in information technology at the University of Sydney. During her time at the University, Tinju fell in love with using data to connect the dots to create the big picture. The combination of experiencing technical challenges and creating opportunities to derive value from data drives her interest in the data-engineering space.
In her free time, Tinju's interests revolve around her family. She loves creating culinary delights while paying homage to more traditional fare. She also bakes, writes children's stories, works to reduce her family's environmental footprint and is passionate about cancer research.
