Sumanth Gudaparthi

I am a PhD candidate in the Computer Science department at the University of Utah. I am advised by Prof. Rajeev Balasubramonian at the Utah Arch Lab. I am interested in a wide range of topics spreading Computer Arcitecture, Neural networks and VLSI architectures.

Prior to joining the U in 2017, I was working as a design Engineer for Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), Hyderabad.

Apart from work, I blog on diverse topics like explaining computer architecture to a layman, tutorials on how to work with various tools etc.
