I am Moorthy Babu Sridhar Babu, currently working as an AI Engineer.
I received my Bachelor’s in Computer Science and Engineering from Madras Institute of Technology, Anna University in Chennai.
During my undergraduate degree, I had an opportunity to come as an exchange student for one of the universities in Tokyo.
I got very fascinated by the system, life and culture here in Japan and motivated me to apply for higher studies here. Fortunately, I received admission in one of the most prestigious university – Kyoto University for master’s degree. This is how my journey to Japan started.
I joined AWL in September, 2019 as a JICA scholar long term intern and then joined the company as full-time employee from April, 2020.
