PhD Student
Intelligent Systems









At present, I am progressing towards my Proposal Defense for the degree of PHD at the Information Systems Department of University of Maryland at Baltimore County (UMBC), MD.

Prior to my academic tenure at UMBC, I earned a Bachelor's degree (BSc) in Chemistry at Faculty of Science, The Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda, India. Then, I pursued a part-time Bachelor's of Legislative Laws (LLB) at Faculty of Law, The Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda. While pursuing LLB, I worked as a marketing executive with comapanies like Crompton Greaves (I) Ltd for short tenures marketing their products to consumers. During these years I developed interest in studying Information Systems and enrolled into an MBA program at Hofstra University, NY. I earned my MBA in May 2001. I joined the PhD program at Stevens Institute of Technology, NJ in the Fall of 2002. In the Fall of 2003 I transfered to UMBC, MD.

I was born in the beautiful city of Vadodara, India where my parents are settled. I married Dr. Mansi Grover, PhD in economics from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, VA in 2004. I hope that the information presented on this website will help form a brief perspective on my academic/research career and associations. If you have any queries please feel free to reach me at:
