Third year, BEng Electrical & Mechanical Engineering

In Germany, I was raised in a half-Indian, half-German family. Starting with timber construction and moving on to electronics later, I was fascinated by planning projects from complete scratch, to then pursuing them from beginning to end.

I spent the two years between high school and University training as an elite athlete in Canmore, Alberta, Canada. I competed internationally in cross-country skiing and in the off season I would run, hike and road and mountain bike.

I was born in Northern Ireland and moved over to Dumfries and Galloway in South West Scotland in 2009. I really enjoyed making my own fun in the rural area and got involved in many sports during high school.

I belong to a society where engineering (especially mechanical engineering) is always supposed to be "the boys' field". But I always found it fascinating how things work and the physics behind it.
