I would like to introduce myself as a firm believer of an American novelist’s famous quote - “A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.” Relentless reading has always been my passion since childhood. It’s possibly on account of this good reading habit that I maintained a good academic record and secured distinction throughout my schooling. After completion of my schooling, I did my Bachelors in Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering from one of the most reputed colleges of Mumbai.

During my graduation, I was introduced to various non-linear and active electrical components to design electronic circuits, devices, Microprocessors/Microcontrollers andsystems including VHDL Modelling for Programmable logic devices and FPGAs. The various subfields available against this discipline like analog electronics, digital electronics, consumer electronics, embedded systems and power electronics convinced me into completing my post graduation in the same brance of Engineering. As an Engineering student, I worked on various projects with the most significant one being Smart Home for Elderly Care, a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) application.

After completing my post graduation, I joined Vidyalankar Institute of Technology as a faculty member in the Electronics and Telecommunications Department. During my four years association with the institute as a faculty, I was involved in conducting numerous teaching sessions on Operating System, Digital Logic Design and Analysis, Digital Signal Processing, Computer Organization and Mobile Communication. Since my research interests centred around the field of Artificial Intelligence, topics like Machine learning, Deep Learning and Natural Language Processing always piqued my interest. Some of the important projects I had successfully executed with my students at VIT were related to Question Answering System in NLP (Natural Language programming) and Claim detection System.

Just as I motivate myself to keep learning, I do my best to instil the same in my students. I believe this will help them master self-directed learning and develop their curiosity in anything they do. Helping students understand the concepts and having dynamic discussions has been an enormous learning curve for me as well. I also recognize the importance of students indulging in extracurricular activities and their hobbies as I too try to enjoy my hobbies like reading books, photography and watching documentaries whenever I get free time. As an active member of the Career Counseling and Placement Committee, open discussion sessions with the students gives me a better understanding of how they perceive their career prospects. It also helps me address their concerns and guide them better in securing campus placements to their choice.
