Work, Research, Academic Experience 

  • Graduate Research Assistant: CACT, UMass Lowell (Fall ’22 – Current) – Advised by Prof. Chandra and Prof. Thompson in different research problems related to Neuromorphic engineering, acoustics, data analytics, and machine learning.
  • Graduate Teaching Assistant:   Electronics I (’23), RAMP (’19). 
  • Grader: for EECE.3170 Microprocessors I (Fall ’20)
  • Digital Implementation Intern: Synopsys (January – August 2020) Block owner assisted the completion of a Double Data Rate LPDDR5X project. Coded and tested abutment test cases for DDRPHY IPs. Testing was done weekly on two different projects. Analyzed DRC and LVS reports from I.C Validator and fixed DRCs using TSMC technology in ICC2. Tested out and ran the QA flow used for release of data to customer. Created a series of scripted checks to determine proper routing connections using TCL and Perl
  • Hivestorm: Participated in a 4-person team collegiate-focused cyber defense competition. Competition included working on securing provided Windows and Linux based virtual machines – removing malware and other infections, correcting misconfigurations, mitigating vulnerabilities, and disabling vulnerable services.
  • Tribe Academy Externship: 10-week STEM and Business program where I met with industry leaders from Nike, Fidelity Investments, Audible, CyberArk, Quora, and MGM to expand skills in Design Thinking, Marketing, Product Innovation, Cybersecurity, and Cloud Areas. Completed a Business Case Study Challenge building a Tableau Visualization Dashboard.
