Raghavendra I am Raghavendra, a PhD Candidate in the Department of Computer Science, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). My advisor is Prof. Josep Torrellas. My research develops approaches to build extremely resource efficient computer systems. My work is interdisciplinary, cutting across Computer Architecture, Robust Control Theory, Machine Learning, Operating Systems/Runtimes and Distributed System Design to build truly resource optimal computers. Another unique aspect of my work is the emphasis on prototyping – I take my ideas from theoretical analysis and simulations to prototypes in research and even in industry to uncover the many challenges of building resource optimal computers at various scales, solve them and make novel contributions

Prior to graduate school, I was an ASIC Design Engineer in the Physical Design Team at Nvidia Graphics, Bangalore, India. Before that, I earned my bachelors degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Birla Institute of Technology & Science (BITS), Pilani, India, and was the university gold medalist.
