Ph.D. in Music Technology
Why did you choose graduate school at IUPUI?
The Ph.D. I am enrolled in is not offered at many universities across the country, and I have always wanted to pursue my research away from a fast-paced city hence IUPUI gave me that headspace and opportunity for my research to come out in a much more effective and fruitful manner.
What has been your favorite academic accomplishment since you’ve been here?
Apart from all the conferences and seminars I have participated in and represented my department with my research, being the head engineer for Resynator 2.0 project as part of Tavel Arts & Research Center has been my favorite and biggest accomplishment to date.
What do you enjoy most about life in Indianapolis?
Life here is a perfect blend of both urban and rural style. It keeps me very productive as it’s not as fast as big cities like NY or LA which further also impact greatly on the quality of my research and of course the standard of living with respect to economic expense - it is good here.
