A fourth year Ph.D. student at the Electrical Engineering department at Stanford University advised by Prof. Mark Horowitz. I am interested in computer architecture and computational biology, specifically genomics. I graduated with a Dual Degree (B.Tech + M.Tech) in Electrical Engineering from IIT Bombay in 2017. There, I worked at the High Performance Computing Laboratory under the supervision of Prof. Sachin Patkar. Alongwith my technical endeavours, I am interested in meeting up with new people, trying to understand different cultures, learning new languages, watching TED talks, reading novels, traveling and dancing.

Under the guidance of Prof. Sachin Patkar at the High Performance Computing Laboratory, I am pursuing my thesis work on the scalable implementation of the Block Wiedemann algorithm in Bluspec.
I worked with the design verification team on the Anton 3 ASIC.
I worked with Prof. James Hoe to explore the OpenCL framework and how it is being harnessed through the compiler from Altera.
Under the guidance of Prof. Venkata Dinavahi, I pursued a summer internship at the Real Time Experimental Laboratory on the real time in the loop simulation of the power diode using Vivado High Level Synthesis.
