Work Experience:

Student Assistant in research- Communications Research Laboratory, Electrical and Computer engineering department (Wayne State University, Detroit, MI) (January’17-present) Currently working on implementing human fall detection device for medical emergencies using 3-axial sensor (NXP MMA8451), coding of microcontroller (Arduino UNO) and also using telematics fundamentals of eCALL to transmit message to the required person.

Research Assistant (volunteer) - School of Medicine, Physiology Department (Wayne State University, Detroit, MI ) (October 2016-December 2016)

Worked on Ballast water treatment verification system to test ballast water discharged from ships into the Great Lakes containing pest species, by developing a fully automated system detecting microorganisms in water compared to sterile water. My responsibilities included developing code on Arduino to function the relays using solenoids, developing a photodiode sensing circuit and power supply circuits.

Research Assistant- Functional & Molecular Ultrasound Research Laboratory,Biomedical engineering department (Wayne State University, Detroit, MI) (January’16-December’16) Worked on implementing Quasi-static elasticity and shear wave elastography on IQ data obtained from ultrasound of phantom using verasonics and coded in MATLAB to check for the stress, strain and displacement levels in the images obtained used for various disease detection like Cancer etc. and successfully completed the data acquiring for phantom at 100, 1000 frames per second.

Graduate Teaching Assistant- Electronics and Communication Engineering Department (Thapar University, Patiala, India) (August 2013-June 2015)

Taught in labs and tutorial classes for undergraduate students in Analog Devices and CMOS Circuits using Tanner EDA and CADENCE Virtuoso tools, VHDL programming lab using Xilinx Vivado, Embedded systems programming on KEIL.

Industrial internship – Statcon power control Ltd. (Noida, India) (June 2011-July 2011) Developed a existing AH METER (Ampere Hour Meter) to make it more compact by redesigning the circuit and compiled it with HI-Tech compiler and simulated current sensing circuit using MULTISIM. Coded 18F4620 microcontroller in C language while displaying data on a LCD and successfully simulated the circuits, designed circuit on zero board, and programmed the microcontroller.

Academic Projects:

1. Master’s Thesis on “Temperature Dependent analysis of Mixed Carbon Nanotube bundle as VLSI interconnects”. (Thapar University,Patiala,India)

Analyzed and simulated three different types of Mixed CNT structures at variable temperature and global lengths of CNT to obtain power dissipation and propagation delay while comparing it with Copper as interconnect using Tanner EDA and CADENCE virtuoso at 22nm,45 nm technology node. Impedance parameters for various CNT structures were obtained using MATLAB and verified by analyzing a timing delay model. 2. Node designing for vehicle applications using Vector CANoe and CAPL scripting Assigned database and simulated the messages on the bus sent by different nodes using virtual environment while it was interfaced to GUI for monitoring the BUS.

3. Designed State Machines for EU eCALL system for vehicle safety Designed working state machines for the In-vehicle System (IVS) and Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) of the European Union eCall System. Implemented them and tested them in the C programming language. Studied and worked on improvements in the high – level requirements for the 3GPP eCall system IVS and PSAP from the European Union Regulation and also from 3GPP TS 22.101. Researched on the latest progress in Automatic Crash Notification (ACN), Infotainment and Automotive Radar and also analyzed their strengths and weaknesses. 4. Designed and simulated 32 bit ALU using CADENCE Virtuoso 32-bit ALU supporting addition, overflow detection, bitwise invert, bitwise logic AND, bitwise logic OR and bitwise logic XOR operations was designed and implemented using CADENCE Virtuoso. Later the layout was designed in 45nm PDK for the same circuit and DRC and LVS check were performed. 5. Design and analysis of Analog and digital circuits using EDA tools and HDL languages
