Priti Pachpande
Priti is a PhD student studying Computer Science in UAlbany's College of Engineering & Applied Sciences.

What brought you to the Center for Technology in Government?
I came to learn about the Center for Technology in Government through the the Student Assistant-ship postings at UAlbany, where I'm pursuing my Doctorate degree in Computer Science. I was looking for an opportunity in Computer Networking and Embedded Systems, and was very excited to learn that CTG had opportunities available that align with my interests. I am happy that I was given the opportunity to work with Professor Hany Elgala and CTG on an ultra wideband project where I am learning new technologies and updating my knowledge.

What did you do prior to coming to CTG?
Prior to coming to CTG, I worked for over three years as an Assistant Professor at the University of Mumbai in India, where I taught various subjects related to Antenna Propagation, Analog and Digital Communication and VLSI and Embedded Systems. Also, I completed my Master's and Bachelor's degrees in Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering from the University of Pune in India.

What are your plans/goals for the future?
I look forward to pursuing a career in academia and research.

How can CTG help you reach your goal for the future?
CTG is very encouraging and helps me learn about upcoming technologies and how to handle projects working on different resolutions. My current project, working on ultra wideband technology, is helping me learn various new applications related to ranging, networking and localization.
