Areas of Interest & Expertise
- Science Education
Proteep grew up in Bangalore and completed his schooling at The Valley School. He pursued further education in America, obtaining a bachelor’s degree in physics (honors) and mathematics from the University of Oregon and a master’s degree in optical sciences from the University of Arizona. Thereafter, he worked for several years as an optical engineer designing and building instrumentation for biotechnology (DNA sequencing) and semiconductor (photomask inspection) companies. Apart from teaching undergraduate courses, Proteep works along with the Foundation to conduct science workshops for teachers, and to design experiments in science for school students.
Proteep has interests in classical Indian music, playing sports and in travelling.
