Amitabha
Bagchi

Amitabha Bagchi was born in Delhi and went to school there. The last few years of school was a blur of exams – Junior Science Talent Search, National Talent Search, Annual Maths and Physics Olympiads – and coaching classes to prepare for those exams. He finally found himself at IIT Delhi in the summer of 1992 thinking that the worst was over. It wasn’t. Belying the expectations raised by his uninspriring performance at IIT, Amitabha got his PhD in Computer Science in 2002. Then, after loitering around for a couple of years with the nebulous designation of post-doc, he returned to IIT Delhi where he is currently employed as an assistant professor.
