• Master’s in Electrical Engineering & Computer Science, San Francisco State University Aug 2017 – Apr 2020

• Bachelor’s in Electrical Engineering (B.E), University of Pune, India Aug 2012 - May 2016 ACADEMIC PROJECTS

• Workout Analyzer (C++) Feb 2019 – May 2019

Used myoelectric sensor placed on the brachii muscle with Ag/AgCl electrodes, collects the Electromyography signals via UART. Data collected with the help of Arduino Nano, interfaced with MATLAB for live graphs. Determined the number of repetitions, duration of the workout and the workout intensity level. Attained an accuracy of 87% (Average age group -23).

• Pacman (Python) Aug 2018 – Dec 2018

Implemented different search algorithms like BFS, DFS, A*, Heuristics, Alpha-Beta Pruning, Expectimax, Q-Learning, Classification, Reinforcement Learning. The implementation of these algorithms made the Pacman reach its goal state more efficiently with the consideration that environment scenarios were altered.

• Projectile Motion analysis and Object Retrieval System (C++) Aug 2018 – Oct 2018 Used TIVA C (TM4C123GH6PM) microcontroller for the computing & calculating the distance of the object to the landing surface. Piezoelectric sensor, interfaced via ADC for weighing. Bluetooth module (UART) communicated the receiver, driven by DC motor controlled by an 8-bit controller (GPIO). An accelerometer and barometer connected via I2C are used to determine the projectile of the object. Interfaced the sensors via MATLAB.

• Convolutional Neural Application Network for Hardware Security (Python) Oct 2017 – Jan 2018 Used CNN to tackle the IC Counterfeit issue. Algorithm tested on well-known datasets, MNIST & CIFAR-10 & attained an accuracy of 99.48% & 78.5% respectively. Algorithm used three layered CNN (Relu) sequential model with a max pooling layer and a softmax layer with a backend of Keras.
