Research



I am a postdoctoral scholar working under the mentorship of Prof. Prabal Dutta at Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at University of California, Berkeley. Over the past decade, my research has been focussed around designing and tackling challenges of embedded -- sensing, communication and computation -- systems. I take an interdisciplinary approach of combining the concepts in communication, computer science and electronics to design novel embedded systems and applications. I enjoy working at the intersection of these areas.

In the recent few years, the focus of my research has been around designing sensing and communication systems that can operate without batteries on energy harvested from the ambient environment.

Before joining UC Berkeley, I spent several years at Uppsala University, Sweden, where I also obtained my Ph.D degree. My doctoral dissertation tackled challenges of designing sustainable networked embedded sensing systems. I had the fortune of mentoring several amazing students, and being mentored by researchers from diverse background and culture.

Even before, I worked for a short time as a software engineer at NXP Semiconductors, where I was responsible to design low-power wireless networking stack. I obtained a Bachelors degree in Information and Communication Technology, and during my studies, I studied and developed interest in electronics, computer science, and communications.
