Abhineet Singh Tomar, KTH blogger
"My name is Abhineet Singh Tomar, I am studying the Masters program in Embedded Systems with my specialization in Embedded Electronics at KTH.
I belong to the historic city of Gwalior situated in the central part of India. I completed my bachelors in Electronics Engineering in 2012 and then worked for three years before coming to Stockholm.
I have always been fascinated with the idea of living in the Nordic Region, watching Aurora Borealis, experiencing the awesome summers and dark winters, exploring the myriad archipelago and different cultures. And now that I’m here, I am excited that I’d be able to do a lot of stuff from my bucket list during my stay in Sweden."
