I am a first year graduate student at Carnegie Mellon University in the Energy Science, Technology and Policy program. My undergraduate research focus has been mostly on DC and
AC hybrid Microgrid and their syncing with the utility grid. Choosing the Energy Science program allows me understand energy economics from a broader perspective and how policy
influences the global market. After my graduation, I hope to work directly in the energy industry and ultimately establish my own venture. My passion for this field has evolved gradually from the determination to implement clean energy technology at grassroots level in developing countries and make electricity accessible to every household in such rural areas. Apart from
energy, I have a deep interest in astronautics and chess. I have been actively involved with the dramatics club during my undergraduate years and I mostly enjoy spending my free time
listening to music on my iPod and watching tennis.
