Hi, there!

I am an early career researcher interested in physics and computing systems. I graduated with a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Cornell University where I was a member of the asynchronous VLSI and architecture group, advised by Prof. Rajit Manohar (now at Yale University). As part of my doctoral research, I worked on asynchronous circuits for event-driven computing and communication. From 2011 to 2019, I worked in the Laboratory of Atomic & Solid State Physics (LASSP) at Cornell University. Before that, I received an M.S. in Electrical Engineering from Rochester Institute of Technology (Rochester, NY) and a B.Eng. in Electronics Engineering from Nagpur University, India. 

My research interests broadly lie at the intersection of very large-scale integration (VLSI) circuits, imaging devices & systems, and instrumentation for scientific applications.
