I am interested in the intersection of systems engineering with Deep Learning (DL). The methodological focus is on three directions:
(a) optimizing DL networks to be more efficient in their execution both on cloud and edge (resource constrained) devices,
(b) analyzing non-functional properties of DL workloads including security, timing, privacy, energy, and temperature, and
(c) leveraging DL in the design and anlaysis of systems, including cyber-security and VLSI design.

I am also interested in solving real-world challenges with the application of DL, with an India-specific focus. We have just started AI4India as an internal group in IITM; more on this soon.

Along with Mitesh Khapra, I have co-founded One Fourth Labs. As the first offering, we are teaching a hands-on course on Deep Learning starting on Feb 1st 2019.

I am looking for undergraduate and graduate students to work on some of the challenging problems mentioned above. If you are already a student at IIT Madras, please drop me an email.

I received Bachelors and Masters of Technology in Electrical Engineering from IIT Bombay in Aug 2009. I completed my PhD in Computer Engineering from ETH Zurich in Jan 2014, under the supervision of Prof. Lothar Thiele. I then spent over 2.5 years at IBM Research, Bangalore and a few months consulting for machine learning startups. I joined IIT Madras as an Assistant Professor in Mar 2018.
