Sreelatha Chandragiri, India
My name is C. Sreelatha. I am from India. I did my masters in engineering before coming to Siberian Federal University. When I was first thinking of doing my PhD in abroad in mathematics, I got to image Russia because of its broad research in mathematical field. So, I searched through websites of all the universities in Russia with regards to my research area and I found the SFU website more interesting because of its having information in English and detailed description of the professors working knowledge in their respective field, which attracted me to go with SibFU.
I have chosen Russia because of the good mathematical school
I know Siberia is a cold region, but I did not know that until coming here where I experienced such a cold climate, but it was definitely an enjoyable one. Krasnoyarsk is a beautiful city where people from all walks of life are cozy and comfortable, and they will make u feel very warmth once you get start to know them. It's really a fascinating city where you can meet people in trams, buses, etc and you can explore nature hidden treasures like Stolby.
I like the city very much now. First and foremost, I like the thick luscious forest trail on the backside of SFU when I walked and I felt it was a beautiful trail I have ever seen all my life. SibFU campus is so big and it takes time to get used to it, but once you get to know, its all dead easy and people here will help you so much whether it is professor, colleagues, etc when every you need help. Dormitories are very near and comfortable and it's good to talk with students here and get to know other country people. So, what about my studying here, I am doing PhD in mathematics under the leadership, Dr. August Tshikh and my professor, Lenairtus and other colleagues. My professor is the person, who is very kind hearted, multi-talented, and gem of a person. Mathematics department for me is the best one and people here working, studying, or teaching is the best. They are very knowledgeable. They are the best that I have got and if I ever become a good researcher, no doubt it's because of these people that I am surrounded by, I can say heartfully.
My research is currently on methods of complex analysis in enumerative combinatronics and other things with my professor, Lenaritus and other colleagues. In the future (where you plan do your post doc) I am planning to do my post doc in the same field and get more experience and be in this field as it comes because as you know everyday is new day for learning and especially when it comes to maths, it's always a puzzle. Being here and learning in SibFU is very much useful when it comes to further career progression as a researcher and it definitely contributes to a fruitful career and I am happy to learn and work under professors in SibFU , who are very much sought for their expertise in these areas.
