As a graduate student at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in Iowa State University, USA from August 2007 - 2010, I worked on my Ph.D. thesis titled "Algorithms and Architectures for Secure Embedded Multimedia Systems" under Dr. Joseph Zambreno. We co-authored a book titled "Embedded Multimedia Security Systems: Algorithms and Architectures" published in 2012 by Springer-Verlab, London Ltd.

My Bachelor's degree in electronics and communications engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee gave me background in signal and image processing. I also conducted research on video compression and bandwidth-adaptive multimedia resource allocation
