Clemson Engineering Grad Sets Out To Help People Who Need It Most

Anish Chaluvadi decided he wanted to become an engineer after visiting family in India and seeing them prepare for daily power outages, a dramatic difference from the life he knew in South Carolina, where electricity flowed into his home with rare interruption.

“I realized if I ever wanted to work with others to fix this problem, I needed to be an engineer,” Chaluvadi said. “I needed to be someone who could apply what I learned from research and take it to people who needed it the most.”
