More About Me...

Prior to joining IIIT, I worked as a Research Engineer at Pentagram Research Centre (PRC), Hyderabad. At PRC, I built the Logical Image Processing System (LIPS) software package, which included a number of image processing routines built using the Cellular Logic Array Processing (CLAP) framework. I obtained a B.Tech degree in Comp. Sci. from Vidya Jyothi Institute of Technology, Hyderabad in 2003. I was awarded the Gold Medal for securing the highest overall percentage in my college.

I did my schooling from the renowned Padma Seshadri Bala Bhavan, Nungambakkam, Chennai and V.P. Siddhartha Public School, Vijayawada. I studied for the JEE at tutions held at Satyamoorthy school, Chennai.

I enjoy organizing conferences and workshops, having participated in key roles in

I am particularly proud of having been instrumental in bringing the International Conference on Systemics, Cybernetics and Informatics (ICSCI 2004) to being. ICSCI has provided a platform and spring board for students of local engineering colleges in India, which are cursed with poor research environments. ICSCI has encouraged many young students to do serious research, and provided them with a forum where they could interact with some of the better faculties from across the globe. ICSCI has since been held every year in the month of January at Hyderabad.
