About me: Before joining UIC, I did my PhD and MS in Operations Research at the Tepper School of Business, Carnegie Mellon University. My journey to North America started at the University of Waterloo, where I obtained an MASc in Operations Research and learnt the importance of asking "Why Not?".
I was born in incredible India and grew up in the beautiful island of Sri Lanka (a.k.a. the pearl of the Indian ocean) before heading back to Chennai for my undergraduate studies at the Indian Institue of Technology Madras. I have enjoyed consulting with companies in the retail, high technology, and energy industries along the way.
