WNCG welcomes the newest faculty addition to the group: Dr. Sandeep Chinchali.

Sandeep Chinchali joined the University of Texas in Fall 2021; he is an assistant professor and Fellow of the Jack Kilby/Texas Instruments Endowed Faculty Fellowship in Computer Engineering in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. He is also a member of WNCG’s new research center, 6G@UT, and is a core member of the Texas Robotics Consortium.

Sandeep completed his Ph.D. in computer science at Stanford in 2020, where he was advised by Sachin Katti and Marco Pavone. Previously, he was the first principal data scientist at Uhana, a Stanford startup working on data-driven optimization of cellular networks, which was acquired by VMWare. Prior to Stanford, he graduated from Caltech, where he worked on robotics at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL). He is a recipient of the Stanford Graduate Fellowship and National Science Foundation (NSF) fellowships.

His research interests are in swarm robotics, edge computing, wireless networking, and energy-efficient deep learning. In particular, he is working on collaborative perception and learning between fleets of robots and the cloud.  Sandeep is excited to join WNCG and collaborate with faculty and students alike. 

Welcome, Prof. Chinchali!
