  1. What are your plans after graduation?

I plan to work as a research scientist at Nvidia. 

  1. How will your experiences at CSL help you in this career?

The topic of research conducted in the team I will be joining is well aligned with my own PhD research. Therefore, the work I did in CSL over the years will hopefully be a good foundation for me and help me out in my future career. 

  1. What was your favorite part of your time at CSL?

The impromptu discussions with fellow researchers and unplanned attendances to seminars that were being held. Such interactions were paramount to advancing my own work and helping me grow as a researcher. It is unfortunate that Covid put an end to that.

  1. What advice do you have for current students?

Do not assume that good things will happen, but rather be proactive in ensuring you are making progress.

  1. What is your home department?

ECE

  1. Anything else?

It was a pleasure being part of the CSL family. Particularly, organizing the CSL student conference was beautiful, a memory I will cherish. I will miss this place.
