chair: akash pattnaik

Welcome to PMUNC 2019! My name is Akash Pattnaik. I'm a senior from Middleton, Wisconsin in the Department of Electrical Engineering. Aside from PMUNC, I'm also a member of the Hindu students group on campus, an Orange Key Tour Guide, and I’m part of a South Asian theater group called PSAT! I also enjoy playing music, watching soccer, traveling, and a good Pad Kee Mao (not necessarily in that order). I look forward to meeting you all in November!
