I have spent the first 23 years of life living in my birthplace Calcutta, India being the elder child of my loving family. After finishing my schooling and college degree (Bachelors of Technology in Computing) in 2009, I moved out from the city and joined one of the prestigious institutions in India named Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay as a Junior Research Fellow. I worked there for over a year with few of the great minds of our nation which undoubtedly motivated me to pursue my Masters study abroad. I came here to the United States in the year 2011 and joined North Carolina State University as a graduate student. In these two years, I have learned a lot and my passion for computing has increased tremendously. I am intending to graduate this December and would love to join industry after that to apply my skills in the real world.
