About Me

Graduate Research Associate, OSU • Blogger • Avid Reader

Hi there! I am a 2022 graduate of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur. From the very beginning, I was passionate about automobiles which led me to pursue mechanical engineering in one of the elite universities of the nation. Curently, I'm pursuing a master's in mechanical engineering at the Ohio State University (OSU) specializing in automotive systems and mobility. I'm working as a Graduate Research Associate with Prof. Giorgio Rizzoni at the Center for Automotive Research towards OSU's AutoDrive team participating in the General Motors - SAE AutoDrive Challenge. Primarily, my research interests lie in the field of safe autonomy for vehicles and mobile robots.

I am a die-hard Formula 1 fan with Max Verstappen being my favorite driver and Scuderia Ferrari, my favorite constructor. I like to play PC games like GTA, F1 and FPS games like Call of Duty, quite a lot. Coming to music, Alan Walker, Maroon V and The Chainsmokers are my all-time preferred composers and the most efficient stress busters. I am a curious cat and my search history is the evidence for the same! I am also inclined towards blogging, in my free time. Occasionally, I do spend time writing poems corresponding to various genres. If you are interested, please visit the Few Words section. In a nutshell, I'm a wholesome nerd: sci-fi movies/shows, passion for technology, geeky ideas, you name it. So if we ever meet in-person, bear in mind that I'm just a regular human being with slighlty different interests. ;)
