I was born in Mysore and grew up in Bangalore, India and lived there until I turned 18. I then moved to upstate NY for my undergraduate studies at Cornell University. I finished my BS in Electrical & Computer Engineering with a Minor in International Relations.
My research involves working on advanced semiconductor materials with applications in next-generation electronic devices for IoT, Communications, and high-power systems. I'm also interested in understanding how innovation and technology is managed in a real-world setting, and I'm pursuing the Graduate Certificate in Technology Management, on the side.
I've travelled to 46 out of the 50 states in the US - I hope to get to all 50 before I defend my thesis. Most weekends you'll either find me cooking an elaborate dish, or hiking one of the multiple trails in the SB area.
