I am a graduate student in the Department of Electrical Engineering at University of Washington. I moved to Seattle after receiving my Master of Science degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Duke University in May 2012, where I worked in Dr. Scott Palmer's translational lung transplant research lab. At Duke, I was trained in photonic device design,VLSI design and microfabrication.
Since I started graduate school, my research has been driven by one overwhelming factor - Human Health. Particularly, improving human health by developing better diagnostics and health monitoring solutions that are cost-effective, low on resource utilization and easily implementable. The unique skillset acquired by working in clinical research and learning
and applying electrical engineering provides me with a vantage at this juncture of Duke Graduation May 2012
engineering and biology.
I thrive in creative and fast-paced environments and derive from challenges.
I obsessively photograph and love to enjoy serenity and solitude in nature's lap.
I love climbing the high passes in Indian Himalayas and the Cascades.
