Hi! My name is Krishna Rupanagunta.

I would love to hear from you – feel free to leave a review/comments on my posts, and if you do want to go beyond that, my email: email@example.com.

It is time to rethink some of our fundamental assumptions underlying our decision making models. The normal distribution is a good place to start ..
