About Me

Praveen Sakthivel

Hey! I'm Praveen Sakthivel, an aspiring entrepeneur and student at Rutgers University. I'm pursuing a Dual Degree in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering. When I'm not in class, I like to lift heavy stuff and play with anything that has a silicon wafer inside. I'm a active member of the Rutgers Powerlifting team and Olympic Weigtlifting club. You can also find me at Engineers Without Borders, where I lead our Camden project to convert abandoned lots in Camden, NJ into solar powered, self irrigating gardens to provide fresh produce to Camden Residents. I'm a total tech and basketball geek who enjoys breaking stereotypes. Come take a look at my journey in making cool stuff and redefining what it means to be a computer scientist.
