Professor Sudhakar Pamarti's Signal Processing & Circuit Engineering (SPACE) research group works on using mixed signal circuit and digital signal processing's co-design to achieve high performance, while reducing design effort and hardware's power/area. We are interested in a wide variety of high-impact applications from RF transceivers to edge node machine learning. Some of our latest research include time varying circuits used in programmable RF receivers, fast start-up oscillators, high performance frequency synthesizers and energy efficient machine learning accelerators.

Opportunities: We have one or two Ph.D. and several M.S. research position openings each year.
