I am particularly interested in learning aimed at vehicle performance, fuel economy, and drivability. One of the greatest challenges I believe is to be able to design and implement changes that meet global demands while keeping sustainability and economy in mind. Emerging markets today call for innovation that makes life simpler and at the same involves keeping end users happy and that is where product design and development in automotive engineering becomes a key criterion. Post MS, I want to be a part of a team where I can bring about positive change in the system. I believe I am someone who wants to be exposed to new ideas, practices and individuals so I can develop something unique using my learnings as a tool. The desire to be a part of something that makes a difference is what I look forward to both professionally and personally. Be it an organization or be it the people in my
