    ETPanache Exclusive: December wedding for Rohan Murty & Aparna Krishnan

    Synopsis

    The couple have known each other for about three years.

    Rohan Murty (R) & Aparna Krishnan (L) met through a common friend three years ago.
    Rohan Murty, son of Infosys founder NR Narayana Murthy and Sudha Murty, will tie the knot with Aparna Krishnan in Bengaluru on December 2.

    Krishnan is the daughter of Kochi-based Savithri Krishnan, a retired SBI employee, and Commander KR Krishnan, a former Indian Navy officer.

    According to a source, Murty and Krishnan met through a common friend and have known each other for about three years.

    The couple will give the big celebrations a miss and wed in a simple ceremony in the presence of close family and friends. The marriage reception will follow later in the evening at a hotel in Bengaluru.

    Murty has a PhD in Computer Science from Harvard University, and is a Junior Fellow at the Society of Fellows of the University. In fact, he is the second computer science scientist to be decorated with the honour by the University after Marvin Minsky, the father of artificial intelligence. Murty’s PhD thesis on the use of white spaces (spectrum) is considered path-breaking.

    Krishnan did her initial schooling in India and later got a scholarship to the United World College in Canada for her high-school education. She has done her undergraduation in economics from Dartmouth College, US, and has worked at McKinsey and Sequoia Capital in India. She currently lives in Bengaluru.

    Her sister is married to Kartik Hosanagar, a technology professor at The Wharton School in the US.
