About Me

I am an Assistant Professor in the microelectronics and VLSI group in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur. My research areas include analog and mixed-signal VLSI design, digital VLSI design, frequency and phase synthesizers, time-to-digital converters, and digital-to-time converters.

I completed my M.S. + Ph.D. from IIT Madras under the guidance of Prof. Nagendra Krishnapura. During my Ph.D., I worked on a 125ps resolution, multi-channel time-to-digital converter for the India-based neutrino observatory. Before this, I completed my B.E. (Hons.) in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from BITS Pilani K. K. Birla Goa Campus.
