PhD student

I am currently pursuing my PhD under the supervision of Dr. Shantanu Chakrabartty and Dr. Xuan Zhang with the Department of Electrical and Systems Engineering, Washington University in St. Louis. I completed my Bachelors of Technology in Electrical Engineering from IIT Hyderabad, India, 2014. My research interests include mixed-signal IC design exploiting noise and design of energy harvesting devices for next generation IoT.
Currently, I am the second year Ph.D. student, under the advice of Prof. Xuan 'Silvia' Zhang, at Electrical and System Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis. My current research areas are power efficiency computer architecture and high performance embedded system. I graduated from Automation in Control Science and Technology at Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT) in July 2015 and 2013 with M.E. and B.E. respectively.
I'm a second-year Ph.D. student in Professor Xuan (Silvia) Zhang's Lab. Currently, my research interests focus on chip design and deep learning. In the long term, I will combine these two together to develop hardware accelerator. I graduated from Tsinghua University and Northwestern Polytechnical University in July 2016 and 2013 with M.E. and B.E. respectively.
