Hello World! I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at IBM Research.

Previously, I was a postdoctoral associate in MIT. I completed my Ph.D in EECS at Massachusetts Institute of Technology in October 2015. I previously also completed the S.M degree in 2011 also at MIT EECS. I received my B.Tech degree in Electrical Engineering from IIT Bombay in 2009.

My advisor is Prof. Anantha Chandrakasan. Our research group works on a whole range of integrated circuits and systems.

I work on low-power wireless systems, where energy-constrained devices communicate with base-stations. The holy grail in this line of work is to demonstrate energy autonomous systems that spend power low enough to be harvested through ambient energy while also maintaining reliable operation.

You will find my publications and contact information below.
