Bio-sketch

    I am an associate professor in the school of computing and electrical engineering. Before joining IIT Mandi, I did B.E. from Nirma Institute of Technology (Ahmedabad), M.Tech. from IIT Kharagpur and Ph.D. from IIT Delhi. My M.Tech. and Ph.D. theses were under the guidance of Prof. Amit Patra and Dr. Shouri Chatterjee respectively. After that I joined STMicroelectronics (Greater Noida) as a senior design engineer. After having 2 years of industrial experience, I worked with Università degli Studi di Milano as a post doctorate researcher, under the guidance of Prof. Valentino Liberali. During post-doctorate experience, I was also associated with INFN [Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare] Milano.
