Academics and Research

I completed my doctorate degree from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), University of Western Ontario (UWO), Canada. My research was based on integrated circuits for control of industrial power relay systems. With the trending requirement of industrial applications to interface high power systems with peripheral inputs and digital signal processors, my aim through my research, was to explore alternative technologies for existing interface sub-circuits designs and address the challenges involved in seamless transition from these existing designs to improved integrated microsystem methodologies.

I came to Canada for my Masters of Engineering Science (M.E.Sc.) in UWO in September 2008. During the first year I worked on the design of a non-invasive brain-machine-interface prototype system which allows simple control of a switch. This work based on Tuneable Continuous-time Bandpass Sigma-Delta Modulators is summarized in SSEV08. In September 2009 I converted the Masters' program to an accelerated doctoral program.

I did my Bachelor of Engineering (B.E.) in Electronics Engineering at Vivekanand Education Society's Institute of Technology (VESIT), Affiliated with University of Mumbai, India from September 2002 to June 2006. In the final year I was involved in design and implementation of a wired sensor network capable of sensing and controlling physical parameters involved in a home-based or industrial process control. The project involved connecting Atmel's AVR Microcontrollers over the RS485 bus in a multi-drop configuration.
