About Me

Hi ! I am Dilshad. I am a grad student at Texas A&M working on my PhD in Aerospace Engineering. I was born in Kerala, India and I moved to the US for my studies in 2013. I am a pretty laid back and outdoorsy person. I grew up collecting Nat Geo Magazines. So travelling has always been big on my list. I absolutely adore the national parks. I believe that they are among the greatest gifts from nature to humanity. I look forward to the day when I get to hike though all of them.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music - The Who, Pink Floyd, Oasis, The Shins, Audioslave, Sufjan Stevens, Simon & Garfunkel etc etc..I love most genres of rock

Movies - Apocalypse Now, La Haine, Taxi Driver, Ghost in the Shell. I like the narrative momentum of David Fincher movies and the intimate portrayal humanity by Bergman. Inside Llewyn Davis is a recent favorite.
I am trying to develop an eye for good films.

Books- I really like Somerset Maugham. George Orwell is pretty alright. The God of Small things by Arundhati Roy is a favorite. I believe that Watchmen and Logicomix are two of the best graphic novels ever written.
I do have a good reads profile that I mainly use to keep up with my 'to read' list.
