Nihar Gogoi is Applications Engineer at RISA and has been with the company since January 2021. After receiving his Master's Degree in Civil Engineering from North Carolina State University, he worked within the telecommunications industry as a structural engineer for 4 years.

In his role as an Applications Engineer, Nihar enjoys using his engineering knowledge and background to troubleshoot a variety of engineering issues while also helping customers with their projects.
