I'm Debashish, a writer and an engineer. I grew up playing cricket on paddy fields in a small village in Tripura, India.

I'm currently pursuing an MSc in Strategy, Innovation, and Management Control at WU as a double degree student. Most recently, I spent the first year of the two-year MBA program at the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad.

Previously, I studied Electrical Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur where I also dabbled in computational biology, machine learning and high-performance computing on the side.

In my free time, I read, play badminton, travel, and write. I also have a bucket list.

  • I can sing a few songs, but you probably won't hear me singing around. 🎼
  • I love standup comedy. Hasan Minhaj is my favourite comedian. 🎭
