My Education Journey

Class I to IV: 619 No. Rangachara LP School, Baksa, Assam (2001-2006)

My education journey started in this school, most likely in 2001. There was only one teacher who taught four classes. The medium of instruction was Bodo, and I learned basic A, B, C in class III. When the teacher taught class IV students, we, the class III students, used to climb up trees, go to buy mithai with 1 Rupees in our pockets, write assignments while sitting under the trees, read table books in a circle under the trees, and play with friends. Those were the most beautiful moments of my life. The connectivity between the village and the town was very poor, and there was no electricity until 2015.

Class V to X: U N Academy Barpeta Road, Assam (2006-2012)

I joined this private Bodo medium school from class V. I moved to nearby town and I experienced hostel life for the first time after joining this school. The quality of the education was very good though the infrastructure of the school was not good. I studied here from 2006 to 2012.

Class 11 &12: Dronacharya Academy Barpeta Road, Assam (2012-2014)

I studied science at this college from 2012 to 2014. The medium of instruction was English, and initially, it was challenging for me to adapt to this new language after studying in a different medium. However, with time and effort, I successfully made the transition and achieved good results.

B.Tech: CIT Kokrajhar, Assam (2014-2018)

I studied B.Tech in Instrumentation Engineering at this institute from 2014 to 2018.  Central Institute of Technology Kokrajhar (CIT K) is a public technical university established in 2006 and funded by the Government of India.

M.Tech: IIT Ropar, Punjab (2019-2021)

I joined IIT Ropar after qualifying GATE. I studied M.Tech in Biomedical Engineering at this institute. I moved to a different state for the first time to study away from home. 

Ph.D: IIT Ropar, Punjab (2021-Present)

After M.Tech, I joined PhD in IIT Ropar and continued my research. In 2nd year, I have selected for the prestigious PMRF Fellowship (Prime Minister's Research Fellowship). During my PhD, I also co-founded a startup, Neontram Pvt Ltd with my friend and supervisor. It is a BIRAC (Biotechnology Industry Research Assistance Council) funded startup which has received fund from Department of Biotechnology, Govt of India.
