Postdoctoral Research Associate

Research Laboratory of Electronics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

I am currently a postdoctoral research associate in the Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) at MIT working on an interesting project on energy harvesting with Professor Anantha Chandrakasan and Professor Jeffrey Lang. It involves the design of a MEMS based harvester and low power circuit design.

I received my Ph.D degree from Microsystems Technology Laboratory (MTL) at MIT in 2016 under the supervison of Professor Dimitri Antoniadis and Professor Tomas Palacios. The dissertation involved developing physics-based compact model for Gallium Nitride (GaN) high electron mobility transistors (HEMTs) for RF and HV applications. My academic geneology can be found here.  

My undergraduate education (B.Tech + M.Tech) was completed at the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras (IITM) in the area of Microelectronics and VLSI. I have worked in the past as a researcher at the Fraunhofer-IISB Germany, Fairchild India PVT LTD, Texas Instruments and Analog Devices Inc.

My research interests are in the areas of solid state physics, device modeling, III-V semiconductor technology, novel beyond-Si RF and HV device-circuit interaction, energy harvesting and low power circuit design.
