Radha Venkatagiri

My name is Radha Venkatagiri and I am a Ph.D. candidate in Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. My advisor is Prof. Sarita Adve.

I am on the job market .

Brief Bio and CV (updated Feb 2020)

I am a computer architect and I build efficient computing systems that conserve resources (e.g., time, energy and cost) by allowing the system to make controlled errors. I work on Error-Efficient Computing with emphases on Low-Cost Hardware Resiliency and Approximate Computing. My research has multi-disciplinary implications in core CS/CE (programming languages, software engineering, hardware design, systems) & emerging application areas (AI, robotics, edge computing).

Before joining UIUC, I was a CPU/Silicon validation engineer at Intel, where I won a divisional award for key contributions in validating new industry standard CPU features. I completed my MS in ECE from North Carolina State University. My undergraduate degree, in Electrical Engineering, is from the University of Madras in India.
