GAYATRI; a Computer Science and Information Technologist from Bhubaneswar; is a developer of software and fuzzy-logic. She has developed a software that can be used to determine the Thermodynamics and Thermo-chemical properties of chemicals and chemical mixtures as well as high energy materials with high level of precision. Theoretical results obtained from her developed software are matching very precisely with the values otherwise obtained with the help of sophisticated and expensive instruments like automatic calorimeters which cost about Rs 50 Lakhs.
Her interest areas include Software development and Fuzzy Logic.
