Subsequently, he decided to increase his international frequent flyer miles doing postdocs (as is well known, these are the most fun times in an academic’s life):
- Prof. Valerie King: University of Victoria, Canada.
- Prof. Shay Kutten: Technion, Haifa, Israel.
- Prof. Ron Lavi: Technion, Haifa, Israel.
- Prof. Danny Dolev: Hebrew University Jerusalem, Israel (as an I-CORE fellow).
Before going to the US, he did a M.Tech in Computer Applications from Indian institute of Technology Delhi, where he investigated natural languages and typesetting (LaTeX) with Prof. Wagish Shukla and Prof. Sanjiva Prasad (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PgZ9KaTCEPQ).
He has a MCA from Indira Gandhi National Open University and a BSc Medical/Biology from DAV College, Punjab University. How and why he did all that and how he circumnavigated the Indian education system is probably the subject of a book in the future….
