Hello! I’m Divyendra (or just Div), an engineer/researcher/EMT residing in the tri-state area.
During the day, I build, maintain & secure infrastructure for Dotdash Meredith where I support brands like People, Investopedia, Allrecipes, BHG, Verywell, Spruce, Byrdie, etc.
In the evenings, my focus shifts to research, primarily centered on discovering methods to bio-hack the human body. My goal is to find strategies that enhance bodily efficiency with minimal effort, blending science and innovation to optimize our natural capabilities.
Hope lies in dreams, in imagination, and in the courage of those who dare to make dreams into reality.Jonas Salk

During my childhood, I had a genuine fondness for assisting others in resolving their tech issues. Although some perceived me as altruistic, I must admit there was a degree of self-interest involved in these acts. Each time I helped someone with their problems, I found myself constantly learning something new.
Being successful at almost anything means having a passion for it. If you see somebody with even reasonable intelligence and a terrific passion for what they do and who can get people around them to march even when they can’t see over the top of the next hill, things are going to happen.
