🏰  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.

3. My headshot was taken by Amanda Maglione in an event organized by the UVA Latinx Graduate Student Alliance. Thank you LGSA team!
