Challenges in job
My job needs a very dynamic mind. There is no procedural work. We have to work on all new technologies. It helps me to learn all industry standard tools which are used widely across electronics industry and who's results define golden standard for bench-marking.

Job made easy
Automation. If we can some how make tool validation automated, we can be sure of its quality(functionality) and save time to concentrate other necessary developments.

Upcoming Trends
I think Hybrid EM solver is a nice pick. Among top three Electromagnetic Solvers present in market non is using complete Hybrid technology to solve passive Layouts/3D designs. Currently successful EM solvers rely on either of full wave techniques like Method of moments, Finite element Method, Finite Domain Time Difference Method etc. Some solvers are currently in the market with hybrid technology but I don't know if their results are taken as golden standard for the industry.  

India strategy towards technology development
I think the most import aspect of Electronics development i.e "Material Engineering" is missing in india. We need some deep research in this field to develop world leading products in Electronics industry.

Another big reason is scarcity of good grad and post grad research work in india. We have some very good research till undergraduate University level, but when coming to graduate and post graduate level, we are lagging quite a bit at world stage. (Considering research work at universities in United states, England and Singapore).

My goal
To attain more research experience in RF & analog circuit designing and to be able to implement them practically.

family background
I come from a Midle class family with my father working in ONGC as Chief Engineer and Mother is house wife. I have two elder sisters, the eldest is working in IPCL, Mumbai as Manager, another one is working in DRDO as Scientist. We grew up watching our father and always figured him as our role model. I have learn a lot for him both as my father and my senior. These learning help in my day to day activities in office.  

Advice to professionals
I would advice him to be innovative, most of the things we study in college does not comes to use in working industry so learning continues even after university. One important aspect of job is to understand team work.  

Advice to college students
Have some practical experience of working on design. We have some nice information about how to work on EDA softwares, but real picture is not quite same. If a student have already designed and implemented basic Electronics designs like Microwave filter, Microstrip antennas, students can realize the big picture easily.
