Work on what excites you the most; be persistent in efforts and in the long run, you'd definitely succeed.
WHAT DO YOU DO?
I'm very much interested in Mathematics and Linear Algebra, Probability Theory and Convex Optimzation are my favourites. I work on projects in ML and Applied Math.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS FIELD?
As soon as I enrolled for my undergraduate study, I started becoming more interested in academia and in my junior year, I realized that I enjoyed working on problems at the intersection of Machine Learning & Signal Processing. Since then, I've been consistently improving my skills required to make the most impact in my domain of interest.
WHAT DO YOU LOOK AT & THINK, "I WISH YOUNGER ME WOULD HAVE KNOWN THIS WAS POSSIBLE?"
In my college, I was chosen as the recipient of the much revered "Best All Rounder Award: Class of 2018" and "Gold Medal of Excellence & Best Student Award" from TCS. I was chosen as the winner from nominations received from students across all branches of undergraduate study. When I started my undergraduate degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering, I never thought I'd get these coveted awards 4 years later. It was a pleasant surprise.
WHY DO YOU LOVE WORKING IN STEM?
Being in STEM opens up a lot of opportunities that when rightly made use of can definitely lead to making a greater impact on the society; Being able to provide tech-related solutions to the problems collectively faced by the society is a challenge that I look forward to!
