Creativity comes in many forms for Ankit Jain. In the laboratory, he's focused on innovative techniques to turn smartphones into health care sensors that could one day save lives. In his spare time, Ankit enjoys the creative challenge of turning simple words and phrases into poems with deep meanings. Whatever his creative canvas, Ankit says Purdue provides the perfect atmosphere for him to explore his interests.
Ankit says he chose Purdue for two main reasons. First, "as an undergraduate student in India, I heard about Purdue's great professors and all of the research tools and materials available for students." Ankit decided to study electrical and computer engineering at Purdue because he sees so many applications to it in everyday life. "There are many possibilities, and that's what motivates me," he says. "I want to use engineering to make people's lives easier."
