Major: Physics Hometown: Calcutta, India

I grew up in India: in rural West Bengal, Calcutta and Hyderabad; and attended the Mahindra United World College of India in Pune for two years. I was then a participant in Princeton's Bridge Year Program in Peru for nine months (and had an absolutely incredible time), before coming in as a Freshman to Princeton. I also completed the Integrated Science Curriculum in my Freshman Year. I am incredibly fond of Physics, Math, running, chess and the outdoors, all of which I have aplenty in Princeton. And I love questions: asking them, understanding them, playing with them and answering them (hence my interest in science). So I'd love to hear your questions, about Princeton, about research, or anything at all!
