About

I have completed my PhD from Systems, Control, and Optimization (DYSCO) research unit, under the supervision of Prof. Alberto Bemporad at IMT School for Advanced Studies Lucca, Italy with a thesis titled ‘Mixed-Integer Quadratic Programming Algorithms for Embedded Control and Estimation‘.

I received M.Tech in Instrumentation & Control (Process Instrumentation) from Embedded Systems Lab, under the supervision of Dr. D. N. Sonawane, Dept. of Instrumentation & Control Engineering, College of Engineering, Pune (COEP), India, in 2012.

Prior to joining IMT Lucca in 2015, I worked as an Assitant Project Engineer in Virtual Lab Project at College of Engineering, Pune (COEP), India, and as an Engineer at Embedded Systems Centre of Excellence (ES CoE), Eaton India Engineering Center (EIEC), Eaton Technologies Private Limited, Pune, India towards design and verification of FPGA based projects for Aerospace products catering to RTCA/DO-254 (Design Assurance Guidance for Airborne Electronic Hardware) standard.

Subjects of Interest

– Embedded Mixed-Integer Quadratic Programming (MIQP)

– Embedded hybrid model predictive control (MPC)

– Implementation of optimization algorithms using FPGAs

– Energy Harvesting
