Some personal news. 📢 After 9 years of exciting journey with Samsung, I have decided to take on new challenges and start something new. From Galaxy Watch to Gear VR, and AI to Robotics, I got chance to lead and create many great products and tech at Samsung. Grateful to all my hundreds of Samsung colleagues across the globe for teaching me so many new things.

Super excited about the next journey. Will keep you all posted as things progress!


In my previous role, I served as CEO and President of Samsung Technology and Advanced Research. Before Samsung, I was a Research Assistant and final year PhD candidate at the MIT Media Lab, that one day when I get time, I may want to go back and defend, may be not ;). In past, I got chance to work with, Microsoft, Google, CMU, NASA, UNESCO, Japan Science & Technology to name a few.

I received my Master in Media Arts and Sciences from MIT and Master of Design from IIT Bombay. I received my bachelors degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Gujarat University. Oh, I also dropped out of Architecture School prior to that. Palanpur, a small town situated in northern Gujarat in India, is my hometown.

For a long long time, I haven't got chance to update my website (2013 onwards). You can still find more about me, my past work, and where I come from at my archived website here (I love my old html pages :)

I look forward to see you somewhere in real,
until then you can write to me at,

Or connect via the digital universe.
