Mr. Indian Auto Engineer

About Me:

I grew up in New Delhi, India and did a Bachelors degree in Electronics & Communication Engineering. Moved to the USA 7 years ago for a Masters in Electrical Engineering at Wright State University. Passionate about cars and after an internship at Mercedes Benz North America, decided to work for a Global German engineering consulting firm as an Autonomous and Electric Vehicles Systems Engineer. My role is to wear multiple hats depending upon the project I’m working on. I work on multiple projects at a time and act as a technical consultant to large automakers in Europe, Japan and North America to help them bring out the next Autonomous Vehicle to the market. I’ve been promoted twice in 5 years and serve as a technical subject matter expert or lead a team of 6 to 8 engineers to deliver a product.
