I will start as an Assistant Professor at the ECE department at Virginia Tech in Fall 2015. I am currently for graduate students! If you are an existing student at Virginia Tech, and interested in working with me, please first take a look at my papers and research pages. In your email, send me a one paragraph description of your background and future interests.
I obtained my Bachelor of Technology degree in Electronics &
Telecommunication from College of
Engineering, Pune, India. At COEP, I was part of
the Robot Study Circle lab.
