I belong to Dhule a city interior in Maharashtra with hassle free life style mostly focused on agriculture , with only one English convent school at that time. It was my mother’s dream that I should learn in an English medium school, which she had missed. I definitely stand to her expectations by always being in top five. The dream of engineering was by looking at my grandfather; always saw him drawing layouts and plans for different types of building. In spite of getting admission in reputed college in Pune, financially it was not possible for my parents, so I completed my engineering studies in SSVP’S COE in Dhule. People used to ask my parents “By making you daughter engineer, what job she will do?” As very few girls used to select engineering. We had only one female faculty. With excellent grades after completion of engineering, the same college offered me a teaching job and this was the beginning of my teaching carrier with many challenges. With the passion for learning I completed my Masters from Mumbai University with highest marks in Antenna and systems subject, considering this I had opportunity to work at SAMMER IIT Mumbai, under the guidance of scientist for my Master’s project on antenna design.

Along with teaching different subjects I have developed laboratory for antenna and microwave my passion to learning continued with a strong desire to do research in foreign university and also very fond of travelling as it gives opportunities to learn and grow up, and dedication. It gives us the chance to be occupied in an activity, to develop new skills and to discover new cultures. In my opinion one should “learn to fly and fly to learn”. I believe the technology should be environmental friendly. My dream came true to work for six months in Massey University, New Zealand where the research focused on environment related issues. Under the guidance of eminent Professors, the research outcome resulted with many publications and an Indian Patent published in Journal of Indian Patents. On professional front I have served as committee member for International conference in China. Being IEEE member, also was session chair at International conferences.

My fields of interest include Sensors and Sensing Technology, Wireless sensor networks, Internet of Things, Microwave and Antenna design etc. I have reviewed international research proposal and research papers in various international conferences as contribution to the research community. Student project groups under my guidance have published papers and also received best paper award at different international conferences. The importance of research publication is inculcated in the students under my guidance and work towards innovations also keen to know about filling a patent. One of the project groups working on sensor design has come up with innovative design and has filed a patent. For the project problem statements I believe one should solve the problems faced by us in our day to day life with the help of technology that is environmental friendly. The collaboration helps in exchange to knowledge and technology this motivates me to collaborate with eminent universities and Professors one of them is Macquarie university, Australia.

I like listening to music and reading research articles and to watch movies. I am passionate to travel in India and abroad. I am always very enthusiastic to seat along sea shore as it gives me a calming effect to mind.
