Pradnya has an experience of 16+ years working as Academician in the field of dental education. She now runs her own research consultancy along with pursuing her Ph.D. in education. Her husband, who is an employee at TCS, recommended ProEngage to her back in 2019. She decided to take a look at the platform once she was relatively free and find a project for which she had the necessary skill sets and background. She found this project required someone with her knowledge, and quickly applied. She lost her father to COVID-19 and thus, to overcome her grief , she chose to get engaged with TATA Proengage volunteer service and thus chose this project to be her first ProEngage project. With 99 research already published papers, Once this project gets published, she will have hit 100 published papers.
Rishav joined Tata Steel in 2019 as a Graduate Engineering Trainee and is now a Manager. He works at the plant, and both field and IT work come under his job description. He works in central mechanics maintenance. This is his second time as a Proengager. He did not possess any research writing skills, but his motivation to join the project was the cause - Covid. He had caught the disease and knew what staying quarantined, away from family and friends, for 20 days felt like. By writing a research report on Covid, he felt he could make a small contribution to the world and all those who have suffered because of the pandemic.
