I grew up in India, and went to college to study Physics, and ended up getting a degree in electrical engineering. At Princeton, I was lucky to be able to do a lot of cool things, and also a bit of research. I made infrared lasers and detectors for environmental sensing systems. Somewhere later in grad school, I also became interested in the topics of energy and climate change, and so joined a few clubs and took a couple of classes on related topics. I'm currently a post-doc at Stanford University.
