I am a Sri Lankan born Naturalized
Zimbabwean and then Naturalized American. I lived my first 3
years in Sri Lanka, the next 6 years
in Zambia (Kabwe and Lusaka) and the following 7 years
in Zimbabwe (Mutare and Harare).
I have since lived in the U.S. (New Haven CT, Pasadena CA, Albany NY).
I did my High Schooling at Saint Georges (Saints) in Harare and
my undergraduate study at Yale. I
entered Caltech for a PhD in theoretical physics
and finished with a masters in Physics and a
PhD in Electrical
Engineering with minor in Physics from
Caltech. I loved the weather in sunny Pasadena!
I am currently Professor of Computer Science at RPI.
I am theoryish but I like to see things validated in experiment or practice:
I like the theoretical, the hypothetical and the real.
