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.
Dr. Shubham Sahay joins the centre for Cyber Security and Cyber Defence of Critical Infrastructure Innovation Hub (C3i Hub), IIT Kanpur. The NeuroCHaSe group also receives a generous funding support from the C3I hub.
Our collaborative work with Prof. X. Sharon Hu and Prof. Michael T. Neimier titled "A Flash-Based Multi-Bit Content-Addressable Memory with Euclidean Squared Distance" has been accepted for publication in ACM/IEEE ISLPED'21. This is our first collaborative work. Keep the good work going Ayush!

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).
