I was born and grew up in India. I graduated from Somerville High School, and attended UMass Boston. Then I transferred to UMass Lowell, where I received bachelor’s and master’s degree in Electrical Engineering.

 

FAVORITE QUOTE

I was like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me. - Sir Isaac Newton
