🏰  Research overview

My research interests lie in the intersection of Computer Architecture, Hardware Security, and RTL Design. I am extremely fortunate to be a part of Dr. Ashish Venkat's group at UVA. I am currently building a security verification infrastructure that employs techniques from computer architecture and software verification to address the shortcomings in existing software verification solutions.

I am fascinated by the impact the computer architecture community has had on the modern world and I am proud to be a part of it. Nonetheless, I am perenially curious and I love learning about the ideas propelling humanity forward. Feel free to reach out via email to discuss mutual interests.

🛠  Experience

Before starting my Ph.D. in the US, I worked as a CPU Verification Engineer at Incore Semiconductors building a Python based functional verification infrastructure, UATG, with Purushothaman. I also interned as a RTL Design Engineer at Incore before joining them as a full time employee. I designed the initial version of their Packed SIMD accelerator which was also my bachelor's degree project.

I had my first research experience when I worked with Dr. Satyajit Das at IIT Palakkad on Cryptography Extensions for the RISC-V ISA.

️❤️  Service

I am passionate about mentoring and building student communities. I serve on the Computer Architecture Student Association steering committee and help maintain their social channels. If you are a undergrad or graduate who is not already a part of CASA, check us out. Moreover, CASA welcomes ideas to make the computer architecture community better. If you have any ideas reach out to us.
Artifact Evaluation Committees - HPCA 2024, ISCA 2024, CCS 2024.
I work with students from my alma mater helping them figure out the grad school application process. If you think I can be helpful, please send me an email.

🧍🏼  ‍Personal

When I am not recovering from an injury, you can find me running, hiking, or biking around Charlottesville. I try to read as much as possible and I also listen to a lot of music. I am a fan of Daft Punk.

I love learning about new languages and cultures. If you speak new language, I will probably ask you to teach me a few words.

1. I would like to thank Dr. Lindsey Kuper for letting me use her website as a template to build mine. You can take a look at her interesting research on her website.

2. The idea to display my names in the languages I speak is from Dr. Karthik Abinav Sankararaman's website. You can find it here.
