Hi, I'm Sai!
I am a Ph.D. student at UMass Amherst. My research interests focus on learning technologies, classroom gamification and improving student-teacher interaction through collaborative classroom technology.
For over 10 years, I worked in a vibrant set of industries like HigherEd IT, Healthcare IT, IT Service Delivery, Datacenter Operations, Voice and Data Operations. In the end, I found my likes in education and decided to be an instructor - like an instructor for instructors.
Video games, history of early civilizations, long unplanned road trips are some of my favorite leisure pursuits.

MY READING LIST
Current reading list👓
I believe teachers are cool.
I believe they are the cornerstone of the world. They inspire me.
I hate it when instructors feel frustrated with technology and unable to deliver classroom material. So, I decided to be a part of the core community involved in helping instructors with classroom technology.
For when I graduate, I wish to be a HigherEd teacher for teachers and contribute my best to the teaching community.
