Ashwin says

“Pursuing my graduate studies at the University of Michigan has genuinely been one of the best decisions I have ever made. My favorite thing about being a part of the U-M community is that there is always something to learn from every individual I come across here. Be it the professors, who are at the absolute top of their respective fields of research, the staff, who are some of the nicest people I’ve met, or fellow students who don’t hesitate to put in extra efforts towards their ambitions, everybody is really passionate towards what they do and are willing to go the extra mile to help one another.”
