Hi! I am a Graduate Research Assistant at GREEN Lab, Georgia Tech adviced by Prof. Saibal Mukhopadhyay. Previously, I graduated with a Dual Degree (B.Tech + M.Tech) in Microelectronics and VLSI Design from the department of Electronics and Electrical Communication Engineering, IIT Kharagpur, India. I worked as a Student Researcher at SEAL Lab, Dept. of CSE, IIT Kharagpur under the guidance of Prof. Debdeep Mukhopadhyay during my senior year. I am particularly interested in the field of Hardware Security, Computer Architecture and VLSI.

In Summer (2019), I interned at the Qualcomm- Bangalore Design Center, Bangalore, India in the Memory Design Team and was offered Pre-Placement Job Offer.
