Hi, I am Arnab Raha, Ph.D. Candidate in the School of Electrical & Computer Engineering at Purdue University. I joined Purdue in Fall 2012, as a Ross Fellow and Graduate Research Assistant in the Embedded Systems Laboratory working with Prof. Vijay Raghunathan.

At Purdue, my dissertation work is on “Input-adaptive and quality-configurable approximate computing”. My research work has led to several awards including the prestigious Bilsland Dissertation Fellowship from the Purdue Graduate School in the final year of my doctoral study. Previously, I completed my undergraduate in Electronics & Telecommunication Engineering from Jadavpur University, Kolkata, India where I worked on secure routing protocols and trust management in Wireless Sensor Networks with Prof. Mrinal Kanti Naskar in the Advanced Digital and Embedded Systems Laboratory. I received the prestigious Dr. B.C. Roy Memorial Gold Medal in 2012 for standing 1st in the entire Faculty of Engineering and Technology of Jadavpur University.

My broad research interests are in hardware/software co-design of low-power IoT and embedded systems, VLSI design, SoC design, emerging memory technologies, and hardware security. However, I also take a keen interest in research going on in the fields of quantum computing and neuromorphic computing.
