I explore ideas, experiment with some of them and implement a few.”

I am a Research Scientist with the School of Computer Science and Engineering at Nanyang Technological University where I teach undergraduate and graduate courses and conduct research in computing.

(My simple NTU webpage is here:

Previously, I was a Research Fellow at the Singapore Institute for Neurotechnology (SINAPSE) at the National University of Singapore working with Dr. Garrick Orchard on bio-inspired vision systems.

Prior to the stint at NUS, I was a Visiting Scholar in the Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Hong Kong. Earlier, I obtained my PhD in Computer Engineering from Nanyang Technological University(NTU), Singapore (thesis submitted Nov’ 2013; thesis defended July 2014).  I graduated with the B.Tech degree in Electronics & Communication Engineering from Cochin University of Science & Technology (CUSAT), India in April 2007. Thereafter I worked for two(2) years as a Design Engineer with Procsys as part of its FPGA based system design team.

I am also an alumnus of the first batch of Singapore Stanford Bio-Design Innovation Class.

Please see the page on my Research Interests to know more about them. I also have a significant interest in science, technology and public policy. You are welcome to go through the relevant pages and leave your comments.

While most of the posts on this blog will be related to engineering, science and technology, you will also find some posts related to humanities and social sciences. I believe that while science and engineering can help us solve technical challenges, it is also important to be aware of non-technical aspects. It is important to understand people, relationships, society and culture. Besides, a study of these fields also serves as “non-technical intellectual fodder” for my brain and helps me in thinking through and forming my own ideas about non-technical aspects of the world. While I am using the phrases  “non-technical” and “technical”, it may appear that they are always unrelated, I must say that is not always the case. A simple study of innovation in medical devices field that actually went into practice will throw some related examples.
