I am jubilant to announce that I will be joining Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) as a Machine Learning Intern during Summer 2020!

I am a second-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 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. Furthermore, I served as a Teaching Assistant for Electronics, Lab for Electronics, and Advanced Digital System Design courses taught by Dr. Xiaokun Yang, and Computer Architecture and Lab for Computer Architecture instructed by Dr. Hakduran Koc. Additionally, I received an opportunity to construct and teach the course, Lab for Computer Architecture, as a Graduate Teaching Fellow under the mentorship of Dr. Hakduran Koc.

I received my B.Tech. from Dhirubhai Ambani Institute of Information and Communication Technology (DA-IICT) in 2016. During my bachelors, I worked on some extracurricular projects; Demos for a few of them are available on my YouTube channel. 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:

  • VLSI, ASIC/FPGA, IoT, Embedded Systems hardware design
  • Mixed-Criticality System on HW/SW Codesign
  • Energy-Quality (E-Q) Tradeoff on ASIC/FPGA Design
  • Approximate Design on Fog/Edge System
