Shuman Ghosemajumder says Western laid the foundation for both his future education and career.

“The World Wide Web, which has enabled my entire career, was just getting started while I was a computer science student at Western,” says Ghosemajumder. “I was the first student webmaster at Western, and was able to take advantage of the outstanding computing resources to learn about web technologies, even though there were not any courses on them at the time.”

Shuman notes his time as a member and President of the Western Debating Society taught him about communication and leadership. As well, the Western President’s Scholar says his education prepared him for the demanding coursework in the MBA program at the MIT Sloan School of Management.

Today, Ghosemajumder lives in California with his wife of six years, Dr. Piya Sorcar. He leads Trust & Safety product initiatives at Google, where he focuses on protecting users, advertisers and partners against click fraud and related threats.

Arriving at Google in 2003, Ghosemajumder is known for helping grow AdSense into a more than $2-billion-a-year business. Ghosemajumder says he looks forward to continuing to create innovative and useful technology applications as well as continuing to grow the nonprofit work done by TeachAIDS.
