"Hi, I'm Siva Shankar Paramasivan, and I am a first-year graduate student at UB pursuing a Master's in Industrial and Systems Engineering. I was born and raised in India. My interest in cost optimization and data-driven decision-making drew me to ISE. I earned my bachelor's degree in Production Engineering from PSG Tech, India. For over four years, I worked with Tata Motors on supply chain cost optimization. I became an ISE ambassador to promote the department and show others that they, too, can find a home in ISE. If you have any queries, please feel free to contact me!
