Graduate Student Profile



Sameer Wagh

Hi, I am Sameer, a graduate student at Princeton working on exciting problems in applied cryptography. Narrowing down by broad interests and desire to learn is one of the goals of my PhD. Before joining Princeton, I spent 4 wonderful years at IIT-Madras where I majored in Engineering Physics with a minor in Mathematics. I joined Princeton as it was one of the few top grad school offers I had. But in hindsight, I can't express my happiness for making this choice.
When I’m not working, I usually enjoy my quite life in Princeton. I really enjoy traveling around this beautiful planet. Sports form a significant part of my life and I love to participate in various sporting activities around the campus. Pick-up basketball and Ultimate Frisbee are big in my life right now. When I’m not injured, I’m a part of the Club Badminton team. My other activities around the campus include hosting a Spanish Table in Rocky, attending Paul’s group meetings and just enjoying life in and around Princeton.
