I was born and grew up in Bangalore, India. In 2008, I graduated from MIT with degrees in Physics and EECS and married my husband Omkar, who graduated with his Ph.D. from Stanford University in 2011.

We love to hike. Our plan is to visit every single national park in the United States - all 58 of them.

I enjoy baking, especially cookies, pizzas, and cakes. In my spare time, I read sci-fi and fantasy, try to improve my mind with 'literature', and listen to Pandora.
