GitHub / Preprint

An easy to use PyTorch library containing knowledge distillation, pruning, and quantization methods for deep learning models

Research Projects
Machine Learning for Satellite Navigation
Digital Communication Lab

  • Developed a deep learning pipeline to forecast irregularities in the ionosphere which cause fluctuations in satellite navigation signals
  • Benchmarked machine learning models for classifying multi-path interference in satellite signals
Spiking Neural Networks for Speech Recognition
Biologically Inspired Neural Networks Lab

  • Implemented biologically plausible algorithms of speech recognition using optimized neuronal network
  • Worked on extending current spiking neural network (SNN) based speech classification architectures with limited functionality to perform large vocabulary automatic speech recognition
