Welcome to my personal web site. I am a graduate student in the field of Electrical Engineering at Michigan State University. I am a research assistant in the AIM Laboratory for Dr. Shantanu Chakrabartty where I work on CMOS imagers and SVM classifiers. My academic interests are in low-power, mixed-signal, analog VLSI design. I graduated in May 2005 with High Honor from Michigan State University where I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering.

I am also known as the founder and maintainer of SR-71 Online: An Online Aircraft Museum, a site dedicated to the Blackbird family of aircraft, but the site has grown to cover the history of all aircraft I come across.

I also love to travel and have visited many places throughout the United States. However, when I'm not doing those things, I'm working on either my school studies or some project. Be sure to check out my research.


26 March 2007: I am making an attempt to update this web site. I posted my guide to SIRCS.

29 April 2006: Moved to Pair Networks.

13 April 2006: Officially replaced my old personal home page with this one. This site is now 90% complete. This site is still temporarily at, so please link to to prevent any future broken links.

4 April 2006: Redesigned this site to be XHTML 1.1 compliant with a new look. This page also conforms to the WAI standards. However, I am hesitant to display the WAI badge on this page since it is a less quantitative standard and is without a validator. Finally, this page is still very much under construction, so check back often.
