I’m from a small city called Bhagalpur in Bihar, which is in North India, just below Nepal border. Sorry, you can NOT see himalayas from my place. I was born and brought up in bhagalpur, completing my 10th std in ICSE Board from Mount Assisi School, Bhagalpur . After completing my matriculation, I went to Delhi Public school (DPS), R.K. Puram, New Delhi and completed my 10+2 there in CBSE Board .
After that, I moved on to study Electrical Engineering in Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kanpur, India . I received my B. Tech Degree major degree in Electrical engineering , and a minor degree in computer Science and Engineering . Immediately after completing my B. Tech, I came to the United States of America to pursue Master’s Degreee in Electrical and Computer engineering From Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN, USA . I did my Master’s Research Assistantship under Dr. T. N. VijayKumar in Computer Architecture. I barely survived the extreme cold in Indiana.
Subsequently, I got a job at Advanced Micro devices (AMD), Austin, TX as a design engineer. I loved the city, particularly the weather, as it is close to my home town temperatures of 40 degrees centigrade !! Almost after 8 years, I left AMD, to join Texas Instruments, Dallas, TX as a design Engineer. I’m still getting adjusted to the crowded city and the big maze of highways.
I am married with 2 kids who keep both of us busy all the time. We have visited a lot of places in USA mostly on road trips including Los Angeles, San Diego, San Fransisco, Las Vegas, Chicago, Minneapolis, Seattle, New Orleans, Memphis, Nashville, Grand Canyon, Smoky mountains, Texas, Florida and many more. However, we still have to visit Niagara Falls, the so called holy place for Indians. Also, we have a lot of visiting to do in India, as we have never visited anywhere in India 🙁
