I am originally from India and have been living in Gainesville, FL since 2015. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Electronics and Telecommunications from a premiere engineering institute in India, and a Master’s degree in Computer Science from University of Florida. I worked as a Web application developer with UF IFAS for 2 years after I graduated and before I started PhD at UF Agricultural and Biological Engineering in August 2019.
I have enjoyed building stuff, tearing stuff apart and putting them back together since I was in mid-school. Along the way on my journey to adulthood and professional life, I picked a few more things that intrigue me including digital music production, graphics- and video- editing, web designing, Kickboxing, and Salsa. I love learning new skills, both technical and otherwise, and I never plan to stop.
I have served as the President of and one of the instructors at UF Kickboxing Club since May 2019, and currently serving as the Treasurer and co-Social chair of ABE Graduate Student Organization. My involvement in extra-curricular activities have given me skills that complement my technical ones, and I hope I gain more leadership and managerial experiences in upcoming years.
