In Indian culture, the importance of education and teachers are emphasized and respect towards them is inculcated in children. As with me, at a young age, I began to respect the value of education and the importance of teachers, who I feel have the ability to impact the lives of their students, even after they grow up. Such impact makes it a vital cog in the overall development of a child and society as a whole
I am a MS in Data Science Candidate at the Data Science Institute at Columbia University. Though with a Computer Science educational background, I am interested in the applications of Data science in the field of Social Sciences, Public policy, Political Sciences and Education. I count teaching as one of my passions.
In my free time I read about current affairs and history and passionately follow cricket.
