Even though the term–bookworm would not summarize my personality, I did have a great desire for reading books right from my childhood days. And this interest was not limited merely to reading, as I used to enjoy discussing with my friends the different ideas gained from my reading experiences. Also, during my childhood days, I used to teach my younger sister and friends–helping them out in their studies. Gradually, I realized that I had a flair for teaching and hence in my college days, I started taking tuition classes. My teaching skills were greatly appreciated by the students. All these small yet meaningful activities shaped my mind to establish the fact that ‘Teaching’ is the right profession for me. I believe sometimes life throws open the choices and it’s totally on the individual’s scope as to what selection he or she makes.

After completing my bachelor’s in Electronics Engineering, I joined Vidyalankar Institute of Technology since 2010 as a Lecturer. While in service, I also completed my post-graduation in 2015. I got a very good exposure at IIT Bombay while working on my ME Project. My project titled ‘Lab in a Box for Multivariable Control System’ is currently used in Automation lab of Chemical Engineering Department in IIT Bombay. In the course of project development, I was fascinated by Programming techniques. Hence, I started learning Microcontroller and Arduino Programming. In due course of time, I not only gained expertise in Microcontroller related subjects but could effectively guide many students for Embedded System related projects.

It is my firm belief that students of the 21st Century need to have both ‘Knowledge’ and ‘Skills’ to be employable and move up in their professional life. As a responsible teacher, I believe it is my duty to ensure development of these attributes in each student. Hence, I strive to continually upgrade my knowledge by reading technical journals and taking up various technical courses.

In my free time, I like to have a small rendezvous with students to understand their problems, both technical and personal. I love reading non-fiction books and watching inspirational videos.
