My own musings

About Me

I am a research engineer specializing in signal processing applications. I finished my PhD from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth in December 2015. I worked with Dr. John R. Buck (@ProfJohnRBuck) to developed two new adaptive beamforming algorithms to improve interferer suppression when using linear arrays. The results of my work are compiled in my dissertation Improved sample matrix inversion adaptive beamformers for uniform linear arrays using array polynomial.

Currently I am involved in analysis and design of algorithms for tracking aircrafts. These algorithms involve different variants of the venerable Kalman Filter. I am also looking into using Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) as a smoothing filter.

I completed my MS in Electrical Engineering (Signal Processing) in 2011 from UMassD under the guidance of Dr. Buck. My research was on design of optimal arrays for improved performance in underwater

I am from Kathmandu, Nepal. I completed my undergraduate studies in Electronics and Communication Engineering  from Pulchowk Campus, Institute of Engineering, Tribhuvan University in 2007 in Nepal.

Whenever I get time off from my research/studies or daily chores, I spend time with my  Nikon D90.  I primarily use the kit lens Nikkor 18-105mm VR. I also have a Nikkor 5omm f/1.8.  I usually photograph all kinds of subjects but I love capturing sunrise and sunsets. Recently I have been experimenting with HDR photography. I maintain a Flickr photostream.

I recently switched to OS X for personal computing requirements but use Ubuntu for work.
