Gandhi Sivakumar is a big fan of Albert Einstein; naturally, she loves to patent. She believes the LED flashlight was one of the greatest inventions of the 21st century (as a college student in the 1980s, she had a similar idea, but didn’t know how to patent then). When she’s not inventing, she enjoys writing articles and bird-watching.
