Sixteen MIT grad students named Siebel Scholars for 2017
MIT graduate students from bioengineering, business, computer science, and energy fields are honored
Srinivasan Raghuraman, Srini for short, graduated from IIT Madras in 2015 with a B.Tech. in Computer Science and Engineering. Deeply fond of Mathematics and having attended camps for the Mathematical Olympiads for years, his choice to pursue research in Theoretical Computer Science would seem almost immediate. His research over his undergraduate included works on Membrane Computing and Hypergraph coloring. Interning at Microsoft Research, India, arguably made a huge difference, when Srini worked on a plethora of areas in Cryptography. This made clear his decision to pursue graduate studies in Cryptography with some of the best minds, Prof. Shafi Goldwasser and Prof. Vinod Vaikuntanathan, at MIT. Outside academics, Srini is trained professionally in vocal and instrumental music. He has held and continues to hold executive positions in various groups. Srini is also passionate about teaching and has conducted teaching programs catering to students from various schools in India.
