My Work: I am a PhD researcher at Walton institute in the department of computing and mathematics. I am working on vistamilk project to digitalize dairy. I use technology to improve the quality of milk.
I am working on developing an Internet of Things (IoT) platform for novel dairy processing.
The “things” in this Internet of Things platform can be anything from sensors within the dairy processing plants used to monitor quality of raw milk to sensors on dairy cows to monitor their health.
All these “things” are connected to the internet, and the IoT platform is used for exchanging information (data) between the dairy farms, dairy processors and the consumers.
My Typical Day: I wake up around 7am, i have my coffee and get ready for work. I have a phone call with my mum (long distance call as she is in India) before heading out to work. I start my work around 9:15 which involves running simulations on my laptop. I have my lunch around 2pm and in the afternoon, post lunch i usually read and do most of my research writing work. I finish work at 5:10pm and head back home.
What I'd do with the money: I would organise some workshops on digital electronics and IoT.
