She was a junior research fellow in IIT Bombay and IIT Kharagpur. She is presently pursuing Ph.D. in the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore as an INSPIRE fellow (She had always been “INSPIRE”ing others to find means and ways to cut a long story short, and hell she herself is writing a long story).
