    Attended IEEE IEEM 2019
    2019, Macau, Macau SAR China

IEEE IEEM 2019 was my first International Conference and as a first-timer, I had a valuable learning experience. It was a privilege to be able to present my work in front of renowned researchers from different parts of the world. The three days of the conference were enriching and as a Ph.D. aspirant, I was enthralled by the scope of work being done in the field of Industrial Engineering. I was particularly fascinated by the work being done in the direction of sustainability and I saw this as an opportunity to understand and learn about emerging methodologies and techniques used in these areas of research. The keynote speakers, fellow presenters and poster presentations also left me inspired and motivated me to dig deeper into areas I am yet to explore.

The ACM-W scholarship awarded to me to attend the IEEE IEEM 2019 made way for a cherished experience and I would like to thank the program for giving me this valuable opportunity.
