I am an assistant professor in the Microelectronics and VLSI group of the department of Electrical Engineering in the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur and a member of the solid-state circuit design lab. I work in the area of analog integrated circuit design primarilly aimed at signal processing. Primarily due to my interest in teaching analog circuits, and to ensure its reach beyond the walled classrooms, I record my lectures for public viewing. You can access them here.
I obtained my Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras, where I worked under the supervision of Prof. Nagendra Krishnapura. During my Ph.D. I worked on the design, analysis and realization of wideband, tunable true-time-delay elements on integrated circuits and demonstrated its efficacy in implementing expansion and compression of narrow, wideband pulses. I obtained my M.Tech degree from the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur in 2007 and B.Tech degree from Kalyani Govt. Engineering College, West Bengal in 2005. During my M.Tech, I worked with Prof. Aloke Dutta on modeling gate tunneling currents for submicron MOS devices. Between 2007 and 2011, I was with Cypress Semiconductor Technology India Pvt. Ltd, Bangalore, where I was involved in the design of power management circuits for non volatile SRAMs.
