Rishabh grew up in 12 cities ranging from the African savannah to the banks of the Ganges. He is currently a graduate student in the Industrial and Systems Engineering Department at the University at Buffalo, and plans to start his PhD in the fall of 2018. His ongoing research involves finding optimal locations and routes for a mobile food vending facility (science for food trucks). Additionally, he volunteers on the Diversity and Inclusion Committee within the Institute of Operations Research and Management Science, with the hopes of bridging the inclusion gap in his field.
Outside his professional career, Rishabh is an avid baker and likes to experiment with different flavors and ideas, and everything he bakes has to be photographed. He also enjoys running, watching television, and exploring the cities he lives in, starting with the restaurants.
