About me

I recently received my PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering from UC Santa Barbara, where I was advised by Prof. Upamanyu Madhow. My research is broadly on signal modeling for robust neural networks, with focus in the following areas:

  • Robustness to adversarial examples
  • Robust radio frequency (RF) signatures


  • Robust machine learning
  • Signal processing
  • Compressive sensing


  • PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2020

    University of California, Santa Barbara

  • B. Tech and M. Tech in Electrical Engineering, 2014

    Indian Institute of Technology Madras


Robustness to Adversarial Examples

Combating adversarial perturbations by exploiting sparsity of natural data.

Robust RF Signatures

Learning signatures to distinguish between wireless devices sending exactly the same message.
