"All experience is an arch where through gleams that untraveled world, whose margin
fades for ever and for ever when I move"
-Alfred Lord Tennyson
Hello and welcome to my page,
I'm Sarath Shekkizhar, a software developer currently living in San Jose, California. I am currently working as a Software Engineer at KLA-Tencor's Wafer Inspection Division.

I completed my Master's degree in Electrical Engineering with specialization in Computer Vision/ Machine Learning from the Viterbi School of Engineering, University of Southern California. During my study here, I had the opportunity to research as part of the Computer Vision Research group at USC Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Systems where I was advised by Dr. Jongmoo Choi under the guidance of Prof. Dr. Gerard Medioni.  I was also a part time software developer at Laboratory Of Neurological Imaging where I worked on project Informatics Visualization in NeuroImaging (INVIZIAN) lead by Prof.Dr.John Van Horn. 

Previously, I received my Bachelor of Technology degree in Electronics and Communication from National Institute of Technology, Tiruchrappalli (previously referred to as Regional Engineering College, Trichy) where I worked under the advise of Asst.Prof. Deivalakshmi Subbiah and Asst.Prof. Dr P.Palanisamy.
Research interests: 
My research interests include Computer Vision, Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Signal and Image Processing.

I have taken deep interest(pun intended!) in neural networks and it's successes in recent years. With the availability of both large scale data sets and research publications, I have tried my swing at various architectures and problems myself.
