My Current Projects:
- Edge ML:
Machine learning predictions on edge devices (microcontrollers) are critical in many scenarios where we are constrained by latency and bandwidth or value data privacy and battery life. e.g., Internet of Things (IoT) and wearable electronics. In this project, we are designing new ML algorithms that generate tiny models that can enable prediction on edge devices with accuracy comparable to cloud solutions.
- PulsCity: Deploying IoT for urban cities involves 3 challenges:
(a) Deploying sensor systems that capture the physical phenomenon (b)
Transmission of data from the sensors to cloud/server and (c)
Getting meaningful insights from the data.
In this project, we propose novel techniques to build a scalable framework to address the communication component - transmission of data from the sensors to a centralized server.
Prior to this, I obtained a B.E. in Electronics and Communication Engineering from R.V.
College of Engineering in 2017 (awarded University Gold Medal). During my undergraduate
program, I worked with Prof. M.M. Nayak
from Center for Nano Science and Engineering, Indian
Institute of Science from 2016-2017. I was an intern with Siemens R&D in the
summer of 2015.
