Bio


Priyanka Raina is an Assistant Professor in Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. Previously, she was a Visiting Research Scientist in the Architecture Research Group at NVIDIA​ ​Corporation. She received her Ph.D. degree in 2018 and S.M. degree in 2013 in Electrical Engineering and​ ​Computer Science from MIT and her B.Tech. degree in Electrical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology​ ​(IIT) Delhi in 2011.​ Priyanka’s current research interests are in the area of designing energy-efficient and high-performance circuits and systems for enabling complex computational photography, computer vision and machine learning based applications on mobile and wearable devices. Her research results include the demonstration of the first hardware-accelerated systems for blind image deblurring (​awarded the best student paper award at ESSCIRC 2016 and ​the​ 2016 ISSCC ​s​tudent ​r​esearch ​p​review ​a​ward), high-dynamic-range and low-light imaging (presented at ISSCC 2013, JSSC 2013) and real-time motion magnification in videos.
