When we asked Dr. Podduturi if there’s anything else he’d like the world to know about him, he emailed us back: “I have a very cute little daughter “Tanvi” and my whole world revolves around her. We are expecting a baby boy in a couple months!” (That was a while ago…we’re betting Dr. Jagat’s world revolves around his little boy, now, too!)
