Hi. My name is Prateek Sahay.

I'm deeply passionate about robotics and entrepreneurship. I started my career after graduating from Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), earning dual Bachelor's degrees in Robotics and Mechanical Engineering. My first job was at Sikorsky Aircraft designing software for autonomous helicopters for the DARPA ALIAS program. Then, I went to Uber ATG to design software for self-driving cars. From 2020-2022, I studied at UC Berkeley earning dual MBA/MEng degrees, after which I became a Product Manager working on self-driving cars at Waymo.

Outside of work, I enjoy giving back to the community through volunteer work; I've mentored a FIRST Robotics team, volunteered at the Museum of Science in Boston, and done some graphic design work for Essence of India, an annual celebration of classical Indian culture and heritage in my hometown.

In my free time I practice badminton, photography, and woodworking. I've always thrived at the intersection of disciplined engineering and vibrant arts, so I'm especially drawn to environments where I can continue learning both.

About the Website

I designed the theme for this website on my own and coded it up using Twitter Bootstrap and Jekyll. It was my first foray into HTML/CSS in 2011, and it's been a lot of fun. Thanks to the powers of Bootstrap, this website is fully optimized for your mobile display as well. Enjoy!
