About Me

I am an Assistant Professor at University of Houston since 2022. Previously, I was a Postdoc (NSF CI-Fellow) at Duke University with Dr. Krishnendu Chakrabarty. I did my PhD from Washington State University where I was advised by Dr. Partha Pratim Pande and Dr. Janardhan Rao Doppa. My undergraduate is from Jadavpur University, India. You can find my CV here.
My research focuses on the synergy between ML and high-performance computer system design. The aim of my research is to develop a symbiotic relationship between hardware design and ML; where hardware researchers benefit from new data-driven ML algorithms and ML researchers benefit from new computing paradigms enabled by hardware-software co-design (i.e., ML for ML). A complete list of my work is available on my google scholar page. Following are some of my research areas (click to expand).
