About Me

I am an electrical engineer with an applied research background in audio signal processing and machine learning and a passion for music.

I will be joining the ECE Department at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign as a Ph.D. student this fall. I will be advised by Professor Romit Roy Choudhury at the SyNRG lab and work on solving problems in the field of audio using a combination of analytical DSP and data-driven models.

I currently work as an Audio DSP Engineer at HARMAN and have 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.
