When You Want Something, All The Universe Conspires in Helping You To Achieve It. ~ Paulo Coelho (The Alchemist)My name is Charles Augustine and I am a Research Scientist at Intel Circuit Research Labs.
I am from Calicut (the name from which Calico is derived) in Kerala (called otherwise God's Own Country), India(the Land of Diversity).
I have spend my entire childhood in Calicut, and I have done my schooling from LFUP School and then later on moved to Jawahar Navodaya School. Deeply motivated by the scientific and technological progress the World was going through and through the prospects in which an engineer can contribute to realize such progress, I decided to pursue Engineering as my career and joined Birla Institute of Technology & Science, Pilani in Rajasthan, India and completed my Bachelors in Electronics.
After graduation, I worked in Bangalore (Silicon Valley of India), first at Texas Instruments Library Technology Development Group and later at Philips Semiconductors SoC Design Technology Group.
After spending two years in the industry learning about engineering and business sides of technology, I decided to pursue PhD in United States. In 2011, I finished my PhD in the field of Silicon Nano-technology and Spintronics under the guidance of Prof. Kaushik Roy at Purdue University. In the same year I joined Intel Labs to work in the field "ultra low-power system design" by incorporating knowledge from various aspects of hardware engineering.
