Sai Pavan, with a bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering from BMS College of Engineering, Bangalore, is currently a Master's student in Sustainable Energy Technology specializing in Electric Mobility.
At ISA, he aims to bridge the gap between the students, the alumni of TU Delft and also come up with professional events that assist students in their careers.
Apart from studies, he loves to watch TV shows, work out, travel. Oh, and he also loves singing as loud as he can. Once, he lost a sense of his surroundings while listening to music and started singing loudly in the library. So, if you ever hear someone singing in the library, you'll know who it is.
