About Me

I am an Engineer wandering across the pale blue dot constantly in search of the next interesting opportunity to learn. On this page, you can have a look at my bio, my qualifications or browse through my blog which contains both technical and non-technical content.

My guiding principles in life are Rationalism and Humanism. I believe in striving to push the boundaries of science as described wonderfully by Matt Might. But this push is matched by the need to innovate for a better future in more tangible way. I am always looking for new avenues to learn and grow in all aspect of life.

I enjoy sports, especially badminton and have an on-again, off-again relationship with running. I also play snooker and chess on the wonderful Lichess platform. My taste in music is mostly rock, metal and hip-hop. I am a self-taught campfire guitarist but hope to ditch the campfire title. I read both fiction and non-fiction titles when time permits. Authors that I like include Stephen King, John Grisham and Brandon Sanderson.

The road so far

I am a Tamilian born in Hyderabad and brought up in Kolar. I am naturally inquisitive, an unapologetic sceptic and have a thirst for knowledge. My Alma mater includes Amrita University and TU Delft from where I got my bachelor’s and master’s degrees in electrical engineer respectively. I have worked as an intern in the Deference Research and Development Organization of India and as a consultant for SAP. I am currently working on the next generation of Automotive Radar systems for Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Change Assist, Blind Spot Detection and Cross Traffic Alert at NXP Semiconductors.
