Welcome to my homepage!
My name is Rahul Rithe and I am a graduate student at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), pursuing a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.
I work in the Digital Integrated Circuits and Systems Group headed by Prof. Anantha Chandrakasan. My research interests are in developing low power systems for video compression in portable multimedia devices, which involve exploring power reduction techniques at different design stages of the video codec, including algorithms, architectures and circuits.
I received my S.M. degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT in 2010. As part of my S.M. thesis, I worked on developing a 'SSTA Design Methodology for Low Voltage Operation'. For this work, I was awarded the Ernst A. Guillemein Award for best S.M. thesis in Electrical Engineering by the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT.
I completed my undergraduate degree, B.Tech. (Honors), in Electronics and Electrical Communication Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur in 2008. While at IIT Kharagpur, I worked with Prof. Pradip Mandal on High Speed Serializer-Deserializer Design. I was awarded the President of India Gold Medal for best academic performance in the class of 2008.
