NTU helped make me visible in the research community.
It is the interconnected, collaborative spirit that defines NTU for me.
I come from a small farming village in India…
So I feel very lucky to have travelled the world and to have completed two master degrees in computer science and a PhD in vehicular communication.
I am still very close to my family in India. I am the youngest of four brothers and I love sharing my experiences with my nieces and guiding them in their future.
Staying connected with family, friends and my culture is very important to me.
So, as you can imagine, when I first came to NTU I was really pleased to discover it was a campus with such a great sense of community. A place where I found myself working alongside people from many different countries. Somehow, it makes us all feel closer in an energetic way.
Tell us of a future you'd like to create and we'll give you the resources to make things happen.
I guess I just like interconnectedness.
Whether that’s within family or teams. It probably even explains why I love my work in vehicular communication. My work involves building a network, one in which vehicles support each other.
It is this interconnected, collaborative spirit that defines NTU for me.
Their many strong links to industry and academia which a have helped me build my reputation within the research community.
And it is this same spirit that has helped me stay connected, emotionally, to my culture.
To do the thing I love.
My name is Omprakash Kaiwartya.
I am Senior Lecturer at the School of Science & Technology.
