I studied at the PSG College of Technology, Coimbatore, where I did my BE in Electronics and Communication Engineering (degree awarded by the University of Madras). I obtained my M.Tech degree in Satellite Communication and Remote Sensing Engineering from IIT Kharagpur, and Ph.D from The University of Rhode Island, (Kingston, RI, USA). My thesis was on non-stationary signal analysis with applications to speech, supervised by Prof. Ramdas Kumaresan.
During 1995--2001 I was with the DSPS R&D Centre of Texas Instruments (Dallas, TX, USA), where I was working in the areas of Speech Recognition and Speech Coding. In 2001 I joined IIT Madras, where I am currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering. My area of interest is Signal Processing, with applications to Speech Recognition, Synthesis, and Coding.
