I am a second year Ph.D. student in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I am a part of the MLP Group and am advised by Prof. Nickvash Kani.
Prior to joining grad school, I spent seven years in the software industry. I was part of the engineering teams at Myntra and Commonfloor. I also worked with two friends on a couple of startup ideas - Shoplane (a hyperlocal shopping app for fashion) and AIANash (AI-driven analytics to understand user intent).
I completed my bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Electronics and Communication Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee in 2014. I worked with Prof. Debashis Ghosh and Prof. MV Kartikeyan. I was also a member of SDSLabs.
