About Me

I am a Ph.D. student in ECE at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I am advised by Professor Romit Roy Choudhury in the Signals and Inference Research Group (SiNRG). I work on problems in audio signal processing and machine learning.

Before this, I was an Audio DSP Engineer at HARMAN where I developed a number of algorithms for car audio applications. Prior to that, I earned my M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering with a concentration in musical acoustics and signal processing from the University of Rochester. I obtained my B.Tech degree in Electrical & Electronics Engineering from SRM University, India.

The major research areas and projects I have worked on in the last few years include adaptive signal processing, music information retrieval and deep learning based audio processing.

When I am not working on audio, I spend most of my time listening to and playing classical piano and guitar. I have studied at the Eastman School of Music, Community Center and K.M. Music Conservatory, India.
