Update: I graduated with a Ph.D in November 2010. I am currently employed in the Core Strategies group at Goldman, Sachs and Co.
I am Ramanathan Narayanan, a Ph.D student in the EECS department of Northwestern University. I was brought up in Hyderabad, the capital of the state of Andhra Pradesh (India), a city renowned for its cultural diversity and heritage. After spending the formative years of my life there, I left to pursue my undergraduate studies at the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur. It turned out that I had a passion for Computer Science, and I graduated with a B.Tech(honors) in Computer Science and Engineering in 2005.
In September 2005, I came over to Evanston, a nice suburb of Chicago, to start off my doctoral studies at Northwestern University. Over the last few years, I have been working on problems related to Data mining and Text mining. During my earlier days in graduate school, I also worked on projects related to computer architecure and hardware acceleration using FPGAs. You can read more about my research here. I have also spent summers interning at IBM Research (2004), Google (2007) and Amazon (2009).
