About me

I am an assistant professor in the VLSI group of the department of Electrical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Madras. I received the Bachelor's degree in electronics and communication engineering from Jamia Millia Islamia University, New Delhi, India, in 1999 and the Ph.D. degree in electrical and computer engineering from Oregon State University, Corvallis, OR, USA, in 2012. My Ph.D work, under the guidance of Prof. Pavan Kumar Hanumolu, was focused on developing integrated circuits for high performance switching DC-DC converters. From 2012 to 2015, I worked as a Staff Engineer, Power Management Systems with Qualcomm, San Diego and from 2015 to 2016 with Qualcomm, Bangalore where I was involved in defining system and architecture of various power modules for snapdragon chipsets catering to different smartphone markets. From 1999 to 2005, I worked with Motorola and Freescale Semiconductor, India, where my main responsibilites were designing mixed-signal circuits for baseband and network processors and full-chip integrated solutions for high-voltage motor drives. I hold 16 U.S. patents and 20 IEEE publications in the area of analog, mixed-signal and power management ICs. My research interests involve high-performance switching dc-dc converters and power management ICs for portable electronics and energy harvesting.
