Ultra-low Power Circuits and Systems, Analog Computing, Precision Circuits, Hardware Security

Energy Efficient Circuits and Systems Group

The EECS group is led by Prof. Aatmesh Shrivastava, performing research focussed on self-powered and ultra-low power circuits and system for Internet-of-things (IoTs). We are currently working to solve the power issue, in order to make IoT devices easily deployable in our environment. We are also focussing on energy-harvesting and power-first system/computer architecture,  ultra-low power bio-medical and neural circuits, exascale computing, and high-reliability circuits and system design.
