My father and I are pictured outside Humayan's Tomb in New Delhi, India here. We toured many parts of India in 2014 including the Taj Mahal.
My dad, Dr. Ajit K. Roy, is semi-retired, but he is an adjunct
professor at the California State University in Sacramento, CA and also
at the University of California at Davis.
He has a masters from The
University of Aston in the United Kingdom and a Phd from Case Western
Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. Originally of Indian
descent, he is a US Citizen. He is slightly taller than me, and
often times people say I look almost
like my dad. My dad is quite accomplished in his field with
experience in the nuclear, oil, and defense industries. He is one
of only two Indians that were inducted into a famous British
professional society for his field. My father has worked in both
the private sector with large organizations such as Mobil Oil as well
as in the public sector for the Department of Defense and Department of
Energy. Prior to retirement, he was a tenured professor at the
University of Nevada at Las Vegas (UNLV) where he founded the Materials
Science program. After retiring from a short assignment at
Savanah River National Lab in South Carolina, he has served as a
visiting professor at various institutions abroad. In 2018, he
decided to teach some courses at the California State University in
Sacramento, CA after relocating to the greater Sacramento area.
Soon after, UC Davis asked him to teach also. Throughout his
esteemed career, he was asked to give lectures at prestigious
conferences around the world as well as serve as an expert on various
news programs for his knowledge of corrosion.
My mother, brother, and I on a Sunset Sail in Aruba.
My mother, Archana Roy, is a pious housewife. She is also of
Indian descent and an US Citizen. She volunteers at my little
brother's school and is active in various philanthrophic events.
Her nickname is Dolly. She enjoys travelling also like my brother
and me. We have taken a lot of trips since I graduated from
college including vacations to Aruba, Alaska, Cancun, and
Cozumel. She is an amazing cook, and she loves to entertain.
My younger brother, Angsuman "Johnny" Roy, lives in Las Vegas, NV
now and is married with one kid. He was born in
Pittsburgh, PA in 1990. He is more moderate in his poltics than
me so we tend to have lively debate when we discuss politics..
Angsuman has a bachelors and masters from The University of Nevada at
Las Vegas (UNLV) in Electrical Engineering. He currently works
for a start up company based out of Goleta, CA. Angsuman is
married with one son. They all reside in Las Vegas, Nevada.
