A city-based engineering student V.P.Sree Divya humbled many professors and research scholars by getting the first-ever mention in the Limca Book of Records as the ‘Undergraduate researcher with the most number of international research publications'.

All of 20 years, the fresh B.Tech graduate from Sri Nidhi Institute of Science and Technology(SNIST) already has 16 international and national level research publications to her credit, with seven more in the pipeline.

Eleven of her published works were presented at international conferences and three in journals of international repute. Though there is no such category of records in the book, the organisation has reviewed her work and bestowed the recognition, B.V.R.Murthy, Limca Book of Records' representative informed at a press conference on Monday.

A keen observer of electrical appliances right from childhood, Ms.Sree Divya has been a topper in academics all along. She started her research study soon after joining engineering and presented papers in the areas of energy management, energy conservation, voltage stability and power electronics at various conferences like World Congress on Engineering and Computer Sciences, World Scientific and Engineering Academy and Society and International Association of Engineers. Ms.Divya attributed the credit for the success to her guide and mentor Ravi Babu, her professor at the SNIST, her parents, and the institute. “I worked day and night for the research papers, some times neglecting even my academic work,” a chirpy Divya said.
