About Me

I'm a 25 year old Electrical Engineer from Georgia Tech. I spend most of my time working on entrepreneurial projects in the clean tech and AI space and for the last 6 years have been working on mitigating Air Pollution and Capturing Carbon Dioxide through my company Praan . I also currently serve as a Strategic Advisor at the Lander Challenge -  funding college students to build, launch, and land reusable rockets.

I'm fortunate that my most ambitious work till date has been backed by by Tyler Cowen's Emergent Ventures, Georgia Tech's Create-X Accelerator, Microsoft, Ansys, Marico Innovation Foundation, and VC's such as Social Impact Capital, Paradigm Shift Capital, Avaana Capital, Aera VC,  Sequoia Scouts, Aureolis Ventures, Climate Angels, Cool Climate Collective, and others. I write my venture stories on medium

In the past, I've had the opportunities to work on clean energy storage using lithium-ion battery packs, bio-acoustics, low cost health technologies, rapid prototyping with 3D printers, college maker spaces, assistive technologies for the differently-abled, as well as robotic systems. 

On the side, I like to help startups in their journeys/troubles pro-bono, and can sometimes even invest capital in pre-seed/seed rounds personally. Apart from clean tech, I'm passionate about open education and hands on learning, creating learning and business opportunities for communities left behind, as well as marine biology and ocean cleanup. 

I studied Electrical Engineering at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, prior to which I was briefly at UMass Amherst for my freshman year of college. In India, I went to a state board school till grade 9, dropped out of school in grade 9 and open schooled for 2 years, before pursuing the International Baccalaureate Progam for my Grade 11 and 12.
