Skills and Abilities

Apart from Academics and Co-curricular activities, my passions like in education and communication, both in the sciences and outside. I am an active participant and volunteer in outreach programs aimed at educating the public on scientific issues and ideas, an experienced and avid debater and public speaker.

Another important part of my life is the discipline of parkour. I have been a practitioner for over 6 years and an instructor for more than 3 years, guiding hundreds of students through their journey and have travelled the world to improve my craft. Improving the general landscape of physical education is a significant driver in my work.
