Hi guys,

My motivations:

-I am a big fan of parallel computing and JTR is my playground where I can
learn as well as put my knowledge to practical use.
-I still remember the first time when I joined here, 2 Yrs back I had
little experience with openCL and I was a real newbie to infact everything
else. I ran into problems even with the openCL part where my 4890 didn't
support byte addressable store. Alexander encouraged me and walked me
through the jtr interfaces and finally after a lot of struggle I was able
to produce a working mscash2-opencl. It's really an honor to be mentored by
him.
-Access to hardware.
-Helpful for my higher study.

Currently I work full time at a thermal power plant as a control and
instrumentation engineer, I am a teaching assistant for an MOOC called
Coursera HPP, simultaneously I'm preparing for GRE standardized test. I'm
hoping to come back during the month of April.

Regards,
Sayantan
