I am a Research Scientist at Intel AI Labs, USA. Prior to joining I did my Ph.D. in Electrical & Computer Engineering from University of Southern California. I was co-advised by Dr. Massoud Pedram (SPORT lab) and Dr. Peter A. Beerel (eessc lab). My areas of research include energy-efficient, robust, and privacy-aware centralized and distributed machine mearning for computer vision and NLP applications. I have co-authored >24 peer-reviewed papers in various top-tier conferences including NeurIPS, ICCV, CVPR, WACV, ICASSP, and DATE. My other research interest includes hardware accelerator architecture design for neural networks, in/near memory computing, computer architecture.

Ph.D. thesis title: Algorithms and Frameworks for Generating Neural Network Models Addressing Energy-Efficiency, Robustness, and Privacy.
