Welcome to my page! My name is Dhruv Paranjpye and I am graduate student at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor. I have joined the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) department in Fall 2018 and pursuing my Master’s in Signal and Image Processing and Machine Learning.
I received my Bachelor of Engineering degree in Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering from the Maharashtra Institute of Technology (MIT) at Pune in India in July 2018.
I am passionate about working in the area of computer vision, signal processing and machine learning. My interests in these areas have evolved progressively over time from my high school days. I grew up at India’s premier astronomical research institute, IUCAA, where my father worked. Due to this, astronomy soon became a hobby for me.
When I chose Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering as my undergrad major, I was aware of several challenging problems that were present in the field of astronomy for engineers. That is when I thought what better could it be than applying the skills I learned as an engineer to a different field like astronomy that would give me a chance to develop transferable skills.
As an undergrad I worked on projects from characterizing Charge Coupled Device (CCD) cameras, developing a roof shed observatory, extracting the signal of a pulsating star from a professional radio telescope using Digital Signal Processing concepts and developing a lab setup for a multi-nation astronomical polarimeter project.
You can browse through different pages to take a look at some of my work, CV, photographs and public outreach interactions.
Apart from academia, I am passionate about running, cooking, photography and dogs. You could find more about this on the Personal page.
