I'm a Graduate Student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering Department.

I'm currently a Research Assistant at UW STACS lab, under Professor Joshua San Miguel. My research focuses on building low-power computer systems using approximate computing. I'm currently working on designing a tightly-coupled hardware accelerator which could bypass computation slices (Load-Compute-Store), for image processing & machine learning workloads through memoization.

I was recently awarded the DAC Young Researcher Fellowship for the 58th Design Automation Conference 2021, San Francisco. I will be a Graduate Teaching Assistant in ECE353: Introduction to Microprocessor Systems @ UW Madison!

I completed my Bachelor's from BITS Pilani, Pilani Campus, 2017 in Electrical & Electronics Engineering with a Bachelor's Thesis on Approximate Computing under Professor Akash Kumar, Chair for Processor Design, TU Dresden, Germany. Post my bachelor's, I worked with Qualcomm Snapdragon Systems team for 3.5 years on multiprocessor concurrency and system coherency; being directly involved in the tape-out of 12 Snapdragon chipsets.
