Siddharth Tallur
Principal Investigator

Dr. Siddharth Tallur received the B.Tech. degree in Electrical Engineering at IIT Bombay, Mumbai, India, in 2008, and M.S.-Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Cornell University, Ithaca NY, USA, in 2013. He joined IIT Bombay in the Department of Electrical Engineering in November 2016, where he currently serves as Associate Professor. Previously he worked at Analog Devices Inc. in Wilmington, MA, USA (2013-16) in roles spanning MEMS products and applications engineering. He was recently appointed as Review Editor on Editorial Boards of Micro- and Nanoelectromechanical Systems (specialty section of Frontiers in Mechanical Engineering) and Integrated Circuits and VLSI (specialty section of Frontiers in Electronics). He has also served as a member of the Technical Program Committee for the IEEE International Frequency Control Symposium (IFCS - '16, '18, '20), European Frequency and Time Forum and IEEE International Frequency Control Joint Symposium (EFTF-IFCS - '17, '19, '21) and the IEEE Photonics Conference (IPC - '17 - '19). He holds a visiting faculty appointment at the National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University (NYCU), Hsinchu, Taiwan and is currently serving as the faculty-in-charge at the Wadhwani Electronics Lab (WEL) at IIT Bombay. His current research interests include MEMS and photonics, high resolution and low cost physical and biosensors, and high speed instrumentation and embedded systems for sensing applications.
