I am currently working as a Research Assistant under the guidance of Dr. Nitesh Saxena.

I have an academic and professional background in Electronics Engineering, Computer Science, and Computer Applications. During my working with the University of Alabama at Birmaingham (UAB), Department of Medicine, Information Technology team as System Analyst Sr, I had the opportunity to work with many physicians and researchers. I could see the scope for further work to improve healthcare through technological advancements. I also have experience in software development and quality assurance in the financial, supply chain, and healthcare sectors.

I am interested in exploring the possibilities to bridge between Computer Science, Information Technology, and Medicine.

In the past, I have worked with Electronics and Computer Hardware industries with experience in Circuit Design, Electronics Through-hole and SMT components Quality Assurance for Motherboard manufacturing, different kinds of drives ( FDD, HDD, Tape drives), Monitors, Printers, and Modems. A transition to software development allowed me to learn one more side of computers.
