The general focus of my research group is on the development of (a) novel hardware platforms to perform energy-efficient computation and (b) novel hardware security primitives to protect the cyber-physical systems against security vulnerabilities and adversary attacks.
Our research thrust is highly inter-disciplinary in nature and exploits principles and knowledge accumulated from semiconductor device physics, VLSI circuit design, computational neuroscience, Machine learning, etc., involving both experimental characterization and theoretical work.
Tejas Ketkar, a third year undergraduate student from the Department of Electrical Engineering joined our group. He is highly motivated and interested in working on hardware implementation of spiking neural networks. Welcome Tejas!
Dipanjan Sen (B. Tech'18, WBUT; M. Tech'21, Jadavpur University) joined our group. He is interested in working on the design and simulation of emerging nano-scale FETs based label-free biosensors. Welcome Dipanjan!
Tanveer Kaur (B.Tech, NIT Jalandhar) joined our group. She would be working jointly with me and Prof. Y. S. Chauhan for her master's thesis. She has already published a book chapter titled "Fog removal algorithms for real-time video footage in smart cities for safe driving" while working on her bachelor's thesis on pot-hole detection. Welcome Tanveer!
Motivated students interested in working with me on exciting research projects related to neuromorphic computing, hardware security primitives and characterization, simulation and modelling of nanoelectronic devices for doctoral/masters thesis are encouraged to apply here and email me their CV along with research interests.
Motivated candidates with Ph.D. in Electronics/Electrical/Material Science Engineering or Physics with hands-on experience in chip design (preferably tapeout experience) and fabrication, characterization, and modelling of nanoelectronic devices are encouraged to apply and email me to discuss potential research proposal.
Dr. Sahay somehow managed to return India and join the department of Electrical Engineering at IIT Kanpur as an Assistant Professor amid COVID-19 travel restrictions. This webpage is the only productive work that got published during his quarantine period (Vanvas would be more appropriate term to describe his quarantine period).
