Baibhab Chatterjee

Email: bchatte@purdue.edu

Date: Jun 2017 - present

Research Focus: Low-Power Implantable Analytics with HBC

Short Bio: Baibhab believes that robotic AI will never take over mankind, but cyborgs definitely can - and that's why it's a big deal to make the low-power neuromorphic systems work (or not to, just to avoid the possible doomsday). Before joining Ph.D., he worked for 3 years in the industry (2 years in Intel as a Digital Design Engineer, and 1 year in Tejas Networks as an R&D Engineer), but also had his fair share of academic fun-time at National Institute of Technology Durgapur, India (B.Tech., Electronics and Communication Engineering, 2011) and Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, India (M.Tech., Electrical Engineering, 2015). His research interests include intelligent mixed-signal circuits and systems for HBC/IoT/RF and of course, to keep away from plunging into another Age of Ultron in the process.
