Tidbits you really do not need to know about Surya:
His Erdös number is 5 - My Erdös number seems to be the 'median' level! Hopefully it will become < 5, (but surely > 2) in the future!! ;-)
He studied until his undergraduate degree (BSc Mathematics) in Tamil Medium - Subjects were taught in Tamil language including Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology (Botany + Zoology)!
He has not (officially) studied Biology after the 12th Standard/Grade and now he is an Assistant Professor in Bioinformatics!
He learned Neural Networks in 2001 as part of his Discrete Mathematics (!) graduate course - though he never predicted it will herald AI/Deep Learning Era we see now!
He learned Topology in 2002 and even presented a seminar + viva in Masters - though he never predicted it will herald the TDA = Topological Data Analysis area we see now!
He has 15+ years worth of English Premier League, Spanish La Liga knowledge - players, teams, transfers, iconic matches, goals !
He has worked and did research in three different continents - Asia (India), Europe (Portugal), and North America (USA)
