I am a third-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the North Carolina State University (NCSU). I am working as a Research Assistant with my advisor Dr. Paul Franzon. I worked as a Machine Learning Summer Intern at Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) in 2020 as well as 2021.

I graduated with M.S. in Computer Engineering from the University of Houston - Clear Lake (UHCL). At UHCL, I worked as a Research Assistant at the Integrated Circut and System (ICS) lab and System Design Laboratory (SDL) advised by Dr. Xiaokun Yang and Dr. Hakduran Koc, respectively. At UHCL, I was very grateful and honored to receive the 'Outstanding Computer Engineering Student' award in 2019.

I received my B.Tech. from Dhirubhai Ambani Institute of Information and Communication Technology (DA-IICT) in 2016. My final B.Tech project on 'Low-Cost Security System Using Off the Shelf Components' was advised by Dr. Biswajit Mishra. I also worked as a research intern at DA-IICT under the guidance of Dr. Amit Bhatt. Moreover, I worked as a System Developer Intern at InWeOn, mentored by Akshat Mittal and Dr. Milind Padalkar.

Research Interests:

  • FPGA-based hardware accelerators
  • Machine Learning for FPGA designs
  • Energy-Quality (E-Q) Tradeoff on ASIC/FPGA Design
  • Approximate Design on Fog/Edge System
