Sandeep Chandran is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Palakkad (IITPkd). He received his PhD from Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IITD). He has previously worked at AMD, Bangalore and Freescale Semiconductors, Noida (now NXP).


I investigate design and verification challenges when scaling high-performance systems to meet computational needs of the future. On the design front, my research focuses on using a combination of modern architectures (where there is a reconfigurable fabric alongside a processor), and system-level modifications to increase single-thread performance beyond state-of-the-art processors without compromising energy-efficiency and security. On the verification front, I focus on techniques to make debugging faster and privacy-aware.
