I have graduated and joined Purdue University. Visit my new homepage here.
I graduated from the Department of Electrical Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi where I spent 5 golden years of my life. I worked on "Attentional Video Compression" for my Major Project. I am an awardee of the Honda Young Engineer and Scientist Award 2008 in India by the Honda Foundation.

- Honda Lock R&D Centre Japan, Next Generation Immobilizer and Tester (May–July 2009)
Supervisor: Mr. Shinichiro Eto
Honda is a leading car seller across the globe. I worked with a Honda group company by the name of Honda Lock. It is in the process of developing state-of-the-art devices for upcoming cars. Some of the examples are smart entry systems and immobilizers.
1. I added display functionality to the next generation tester under development. It consisted of implementation of I2C (I squared C) transmission from a microcontroller, reception on FPGA and display on an LCD.
2. Made program for detection of optimum frequencies for LF communication between car key and immobilizer unit. This consisted of implementation of UART transmission from a personal computer, reception on microcontroller and substitution of LF parameters in ABIC wave.
- Technical Skills Acquired: Microcontroller programming, VHDL, Visual Basic
- Outcome: Tester to be installed at Honda product lines in clean rooms by November 2009. New immobilizer system to be incorporated in cars to be launched in 2011.

- Victoria University Melbourne, ADC Layout for UBW Receiver (May–July 2008)
Supervisor: Dr. Ronny Veljanovski
Full custom layout implementation of an Analog to Digital Converter for ultra wide band commnications. Specifications of ADC were 6 giga samples per second, an input range of 1V and supply voltage of 1V Vdd. This was implemented using CMP 90-nanometer CMOS technology process.
- Attentional Video Compression (May 2010 - May 2011)
Supervisor: Prof. Santanu Chaudhury
This project aims at visual saliency guided bit allocation for video compression without compromising perceptual quality.
- Rapidly Deployable WiMAX Mesh Network (Jan 2010 - May 2010)
Supervisor: Dr. Vinay Ribeiro
The objective is to design, build, and evaluate a wireless mesh network that provides high-throughput and QoS sufficient to enable triple-play applications. In addition the network must be readily deployable, enable end-to-end connectivity of few kilometres, allow nomadic mobility of mesh nodes, and be robust to node failure. It is targeted for application in defence and disaster management.
- Handwriting in Chat Applications (May 2010 - June 2010)
Incorporated handwriting as a separate stream with audio, video and text to conserve large amounts of bandwidth. Being deployed for dissemination of secondary education in rural areas of West Bengal, India.
- Global Mobile Broadband Internet (Feb 2010 – Apr 2010)
Literature review of the evolution of mobile broadband internet and 4G technology. The suitable access schemes for 4G and the 4G architecture in the context of broadband internet. The concept of mobile broadband internet with seamless global mobility along with some state-of-the-art solutions. A short discussion on novel in-flight internet access technologies.
- JFETs for Nanoelectronics (Jan 2010 – May 2009)
Supervisor: Prof. M. Jagadesh Kumar
Analysis of the behaviour and characteristics of JFETs at extremely scaled down dimensions. Careful design modifications in an attempt to establish their superiority over MOSFETs for future technology nodes. Successful in finding a structure with very little subthreshold conduction.
- Biosensor Networks for Pervasive Healthcare (Aug 2009)
Supervisor: Dr. Kanav Kahol
Literature review of some of the most promising existing biosensor technologies and a proposed method to incorporate intelligence to the ambient environment.
- Knowledge Acquired: On Body Electronics, Gesture Recognition
- Project Report
- Wide Bandgap Semiconductors (Sep2009 – Nov 2008)
Supervisor: Prof. M. Jagadesh Kumar
