I am a senior research scientist at Samsung Research and a co-founder and CTO at Illumia AI. Before this, I was a Ph.D. candidate at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Princeton University under the supervision of Niraj K. Jha. My main research areas are Machine Learning, Neuroscience-inspired AI, Edge Computing, and Embedded systems. I did my undergraduate studies at the Department of Electrical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Delhi. I have also worked as a visiting researcher at the Embedded Systems Laboratory (ESL), Institute of Electrical Engineering at EPFL, Switzerland.

My publications can be seen here. I have reviewed for top journals including IEEE TCAD, TEVC, TETC, TII, and Wiley SPE. I have also served as a reviewer for reputed conferences like CISS, CogSci, and ICML. View my CV here.
