I was born in Bikaner, Rajasthan, India. I received a B.Tech. in 1993 from the Indian Institute of Technology-Kanpur (IITK), a M.S. in 1995 from the Washington University, St. Louis, MO (WashU), and a Ph.D. in 1999 from the University of Illinois-Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), Urbana, IL, all in electrical engineering.
After a brief stint, working as a Visiting Assistant Professor at UIUC during 1999-2000, I joined T. J. Watson Research Center, IBM as a Research Staff Member. Ever since joining IBM in 2000, I have worked on cutting-edge technologies delivering breakthrough innovations to IBM products and solutions. There has never been a dull day at work - thanks to my colleauges and friends at IBM!
