Undergraduate degree: Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD), Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, Bangalore, India.

Hometown: Kerala, India.

I am a Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) graduate from India, currently pursuing my masters’ in Health Informatics at SOIC, IUPUI. It has been fascinating to me how technology is transforming the healthcare industry. With a lifetime love for the real-world application of advanced technologies and data in healthcare, I strive to create powerful insights from data to make data-driven decisions within healthcare as it helps to serve our world better.

Apart from academics, I love playing and watching soccer, athletics, photography, and cooking. I work as a laboratory research assistant in pediatric cardiology with Dr. M. Payne, MD, at Indiana University School of Medicine. As a SoIC graduate ambassador, I’m looking forward to helping students who would like to start a career in the field of health informatics. Feel free to contact me, and I would be more than happy to help you to the best of my abilities!

Advice for new students:  Do not follow your dreams, follow your talent, and achieve your dreams. Dreams do come true! Make use of all the opportunities, and never give up until you achieve what you desire!
