About me

I am an Embedded Software Architect (Innovation team) at ITEC. I am coordinating the activities of ITEC for the Intelligent Motion Control for Industry4.E (IMOCO4.E) ECSEL JU project management. ITEC provides the pilot for semiconductor production in IMOCO4.E. I am also developing and integrating vision-in-the-loop solution and deep learning algorithms for the Automated Die Attach (ADAT) equipment.

Prior to that I was an early-stage researcher in the Electronic Systems group of the Department of Electrical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). My doctoral thesis was titled "Multiprocessor Image-Based Control: Model-Driven Optimisation". I was part of the FitOptiVis project and was an Early-Stage Researcher in the oCPS project.

I graduated as an electrical & electronics engineer with a passion for embedded systems, robotics, microprocessors and microcontrollers from National Insitute of Technology (NIT) Calicut in 2012.

This passion led me to pursue my Masters' in Embedded Controls & Software at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur. It is during my masters' that I became fascinated with formal methods in design, modelling and analysis of embedded systems. I got involved in a collaborative sponsored project on Architecture-aware timing analysis and optimization of safety-critical automotive software (AUTOSAFE). I was then awarded the prestigious DAAD scholarship to pursue my masters' thesis at the Institute of Real-time Computer Systems at TU Munich, Germany. Here, I had worked on Timing analysis in automotive systems in collaboration with Inchron GmbH.

I realised my love for research and decided to pursue my career in research. After post graduation, I continued to work on the AUTOSAFE project until its completion. I came across challenging problems faced in the formal validation and certification of automotive systems and learned of more fundamental issues faced in cyber-physical system design.

An opportunity to research in this direction arose with the oCPS (Platform-aware Model-driven Optimization of Cyber-Physical Systems) project, which I gladly accepted. After the successful completion of this project, I worked in the FitOptiVis (From the cloud to the edge – smart IntegraTion and OPtimisation Technologies for highly efficient Image and VIdeo processing Systems) project from November 2019 to May 2021.
