NeuroComputing and Hardware Security (NeuroCHaSe) Group

Department of Electrical Engineering,

Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur


Welcome to the homepage of Dr. Shubham Sahay

The general focus of my NeuroComputing and Hardware Security (NeuroCHaSe) 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.

I am looking for self-motivated students with strong academic background to join our group and work on exciting projects related to neuromorphic computing, hardware security primitives and characterization, simulation and modelling of nanoelectronic devices. Interested students can email their CV with a short description about their research interests and potential research problems they would like to work on.
