Vaskar’s tryst with engineering and technology started nearly 22 years back. Starting off as a Production Planning & Control Engineer, with an engineering major, Vaskar dabbed his hands in Manufacturing, Materials Management, Erection-Commissioning, Technical Services and Engineering Project Sales at the start of his career. Subsequently, he moved into the sphere of Information Technology with focus on Enterprise Products & Solutions. Vaskar has worked with companies like Thermax Ltd., PCS, Ramco Systems, Matrix, Data-Core, Inc., Netguru, Inc., B K Birla Group, Kanika Infotech Singapore Pte. Ltd., etc., across five continents. Vaskar’s recent areas of competency includes strategy, marketing & brand management, product visualization and marketing, capacity building, competency augmentation, communication and training.
Often branded as a compulsive story-teller by his colleagues, Vaskar is a serious nature lover and a fitness enthusiast. An avid reader, his choice of literature varies from psychology and war stories to spirituality and romance under trying circumstances.

Abhi, these days, goes by the sobriquet of a data scientist, which is open to debate. Some call him an algorithms expert, some others call him a computational geometer, and yet some others call him a pseudo-mathematician. And all of these are partly true. He has worked as a consultant for various organizations in all these capacities, lectured for students in multiple institutes, and presented research papers. He has worked with big data in financial fraud detection (which is used by banks in India and abroad), computer aided drug design (used by drug companies), survival studies of patients (used by oncological companies in the US), economic impacts of microfinance (used by UN and World Bank), and others. He feels alive solving problems – algorithmic and mathematical in nature; but probably feels more at home sleeping, eating, dreaming about traveling to weird places (but never really taking the plunge), reading (a jack of all trades, truly), and teaching unusual un-classroom mathematics to young children.
He graduated from Jadavpur University in Electrical Engineering, managed his masters in System Science and Automation from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, wheedled his doctorate from the same institute and then pried a Post-doc from Technical University of Munich.
