M.S. in Electrical & Computer Engineering
Why did you choose graduate school at IUPUI?
I chose IUPUI due to its strong engineering programs and the vast research and scholarship opportunities available. IUPUI's affiliation with Purdue University for these programs was also a very key factor that helped me make the decision.
What has been your favorite academic accomplishment since you’ve been here?
I am truly proud of the research that I have done as a part of my Master's thesis for which I have been recognized in the IEEE conference at Las Vegas. During the course of my research in IoT lab at IUPUI, I collaborated with many people. This gave me a new perspective to look at problems. ECE at IUPUI has a very inclusive environment that helps you to grow as a person. Apart from a fostering environment I also got to work on state-of-the-art hardware and software available at IoT collaboratory Lab at ECE which was really fun!
What do you enjoy most about life in Indianapolis?
Indianapolis is a really big town and has a beautiful downtown area. There are a lot of fun places to visit. Even though Indy is busy, you can always find peace at the White River waterfront.
Please provide some details about your work/research as a graduate student and/or any activities you are involved in.
As a graduate research assistant at IoT collaboratory, I worked with multiple industry partners. I was primarily engaged with my research on developing Convolution Neural Network for embedded targets with a focus on reducing memory and computational requirements. Apart from the primary area of research, I was also exposed to a lot of Industrial projects such as Level detection using Convolutional Neural Network and creating ultra-low power IoT end devices and border routers using 6LoWPAN protocols.
I have actively participated in events organized all across IUPUI which has been a great way to understand diverse cultures!
