I am Jayati Deshmukh.

I am a complete Indian as I am associated with 6 states of India as of now! Thus I have seen a lot diversity of India.

Professionally I am a Computer Engineer and Researcher. I like knowing more about different areas in my field. Currently I’m doing Ph.D. in the area of Multi-agent Systems and Network Science. My professional details can be found here.

I have an INTJ personality. It has been one of the most important aspect of self discovery for me. I understood a lot about myself and my behavioural intricacies after discovering my personality type.

I like challenges. I like solving problems. I like having deep discussions. I am a very good listener.

I am a perfectionist and want everything to happen as planned (and this is the prime source ofย stress for me). I give my 100% to achieve my goals. I always like to have something to look forward to in life which keeps me motivated.

I have very high expectations from myself. I want to be the best in everything I do, which again sometimes makes things really hard for me.

With respect to hobbies, I am a jack of many trades but master of none! I am a voracious reader and want to write a book one day. I am an amateur photographer. Sometimes, I like to draw as well. I am also interested in music. I like listening to instrumental music and can also play keyboard. Some of my keyboard covers are here. I am a big foodie. I can cook fairly well and also love to go to restaurants and try a variety of dishes. I love travelling! I have been to many places in India as well as a few places abroad. I would love to travel around the world. Travelling is one of the things that gives me most pleasure!

Okay, I have told a lot about myself, much more than what I would have said in one go. But then it is my “About” page, so I guess it’s fine…

Welcome to my blog “My Cup of Tea”. My blog is a window which presents glimpses of the journey of my life. Hope you enjoy here. Please do leave your feedback or suggestions in the comments below.

This beautifully sums up the reason for starting My Cup of Tea-

  3. Hi Jayati,

    I am the author of a debut fiction, ‘Once Upon the Tracks of Mumbai,’ released in bookstores last month. I was wondering if you would be interested in reviewing the book on your blog. For more information on the book, please visit http://www.rishivohra.com.

    Thank you for your time and consideration.


    1. Thanks a lot Rishi,

      I currently busy with studies right now,
      but i would love to read and review the book โ€˜Once Upon the Tracks of Mumbai’.
      I look forward to it as soon as i am free.


  4. You have designed your blog so good , i want to know some information about IIITB , i am from ECE ,my gate rank (2012) is 1363(gate score 633). may i get admission in IIITB

    1. Hi Sridhar,
      The call is based on Gate score as well as 10th and 12th board score and other achievements.
      However you can expect a call as your gate score is good.

  5. Hey I was searching someone writing about IIIT-B. I got your blog. Read some articles. They were really good. Have some queries about the college. So can you give me your email id so that we can talk. Surely wont take much of your time. Thanks in advance. Have a great Day !!

    1. Hi Shashank,
      Thanks a lot !
      I would suggest that you post your queries here on my blog itself so that others who have similar queries may also get a reply.

  6. Hi Jayati,

    I have got an admit from IIIT-B for Mtech and found your blog when i was going through the OSL site. I wanted to know about the college in general and the facilities and research. My areas of interests are Machine Learning(ML), distributed systems, analytics. Is there any ML lab separately. Is it a good place to continue this.

    Secondly on the OSL site i saw two categories Mtech thesis students and Mtech project students, how are the different.

    1. Hi Harsha,

      Congrats and welcome to IIIT-B !

      IIIT-B is the best place if you want to learn. It has highly experienced faculties. It also provides good opportunities for research.

      There is Computational Science Lab which works on ML. OSL lab is also currently working on an analytics project. Thus IIIT-B is a great place to continue in this area. You can join and know more about it.

      In the last semester one can either do thesis or internship. Thus on the OSL site MTech thesis students spent their final semester doing research and finally submitted a thesis. MTech project students participated in OSL lab during the other semesters (like project elective).

    1. Hi Vinaya,

  9. Hi Jayati, I really like your smart city image and would like permission to use this to make a “button” for our urban ecology group. how can I contact you?

    1. Hello Prof Olyssa,
      I saw that you are doing some interesting research on urban management using systems approach! I’m delighted that you found the image useful!
