I was born and brought up in a small village full of mountains and trees in rural area of Rajapur in Ratnagiri district of Konkan region. When I was growing up, I could see so many changes and advances in my village but it was a blessing in disguise. The various technical innovations and modernization triggered a new love for engineering, especially electronics engineering and later, it became my passion. I feel fortunate that I received education and learnings from highly passionate, motivated and selfless teachers during my school and college days. It was truly a moment of revelation when my environment shaped by destiny. I realized my self-desire to take up teaching as my ultimate goal or career, after my graduation.

My inherent bent towards science and engineering related subjects made me to work hard and secure top ranks during my engineering studies. After completing Bachelors in Electronics from Finolex Academy of Management and Technology, Ratnagiri, I joined in the same college as a Lecturer in Electronics Engineering department. Later based on good GATE score I joined well-reputed Walchand College of Engineering, Sangli, for the M. Tech program. Continuing my good academic record, I secured Bronze medal during my M. Tech exam.

It is always good to have some industry experience during teaching. Keeping this in mind I joined STMicroelectronics Pvt. Ltd, Noida, one of the top most semiconductor-VLSI companies, in technical Research and Development field. After working there on many live projects, I decided to return to academics and joined Vidyalankar Institute of Technology which helped me further to learn and adapt to rapid changes in industries.

I strongly believe that practical or applied work is the most important part of engineering studies.Therefore, I love working in laboratories and have helped to improve many laboratories like Analog ICs, VLSI Design. I have guided many projects such as Tennibot replica, automated water surface cleaning boat, smart bank locker, etc. I like performing research especially in low power, high speed VLSI domain and would like to associate in these domains.

I would like to associate and collaborate with students and faculty to work in digital, Analog and Mixed Signal VLSI domain as the main areas of core Electronics. I would also love to associate in trending domains like Python programming, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence.

I love spending time with nature and try to visit many places full of mountains, greenery and other natural beauties. I love drawing and painting, especially nature paintings and was awarded with “Paryavaran Mitra” award by Hon. Anna Hajare and Abasaheb More for excellent painting of a picture, related to saving of trees in my school days. I also like reading novels, preferably historical novels.
