Why I chose the PhDCEP Program:
The program is one of the only programs of its kind. It brings this useful but rare combination of graduate-level research experience and management education. The graduate level courses and the rigorous PhD experience helps build a strong ChemE foundation, whereas the training at Sloan provides a unique perspective to evaluate technologies and research ideas from a business angle. I wish to work as a business head in the ChemE/biotech industry in the future. Hence, I felt that the PhDCEP program was the best fit for me.

Work experience and activities:
Summer internship - University of Southern California, Chemical Engineering
Undergraduate research at IIT Kharagpur in the area of biomaterials
Started to pursue photography in my undergrad; love table-tennis and watching cricket
