Publications

I have completed 9 journal articles and 27 conference proceedings, including several STEM educational publications. As a Ph.D. candidate, I received research recognition from ACM/IEEE conferences including best poster at the 2019 Great Lakes Symposium on VLSI (GLSVLSI) for the manuscript titled “AQuRate: MRAM-based Stochastic Oscillator for Adaptive Quantization Rate Sampling of Sparse Signals” and the best paper nomination at 2017 International Symposium on Quality Electronic Design (ISQED) for a paper titled “Variation-Immune Resistive Non-Volatile Memory using Self-Organized Sub-Bank Circuit Designs”. Additionally, I have published my research in prestigious journals, such as IEEE Transactions on Emerging Topics in Computing (TETC) and IEEE Journal on Emerging and Selected Topics in Circuits and Systems (JETCAS), as well as top-tier conferences in the fields of computing and security including Network and Distributed Systems Security (NDSS) Symposium and Design Automation Conference (DAC). Additionally, I was selected to present my dissertation topic at the 2019 Design Automation Conference (DAC’19) Ph.D. Forum.
