I am pursuing my Ph.D. studies in aerospace engineering in Texas, USA. I belong to a middle class, nuclear family from Haldia in West Bengal, with liberal values. I studied at St.Xavier's school, Haldia. I did my bachelors in electrical engineering from Jadavpur University. I completed my masters in electrical engineering from IIT Kanpur before coming to USA for my Ph.D. in aerospace engineering.
My mother and father are still in Haldia, while my sister is completing her B.Ed degree from Bhubaneshwar. She has a bachelors and masters degree in zoology, both from Bethune College, Kolkata.
I am a moderately social person who enjoys cooking and baking. After coming to USA, I have taken up some more hobbies to keep myself busy which includes regular rock climbing, running and brazilian jiu-jitsu.
