Rohin Tangirala


Undergraduate Student in EECS at UC Berkeley

I am an undergraduate student at the University of California, Berkeley pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS). I am primarily interested in research at the intersection of electrical engineering and applied physics, and I hope to pursue my academic interests further in graduate school and beyond. On the side, I love listening to, playing, and sometimes recording music.


Research Experience

I am currently conducting research on nanoscale electrochemical devices consisting of a multi-analyte sensor array with carbon nanotube based biosensors under the mentorship of Dr. Waqas Khalid of UC Berkeley.

Previously, I conducted research on computer vision and signal processing under the mentorship of Dr. Susan Fox of Macalester College. I explored the application of the Eulerian magnification algorithm for remote detection of an individual's heart rate from video. I developed an implementation that utilizes a temporal bandpass filter based on a fast Fourier transform for extracting the heart rate signal.


Professional Experience

I also have experience in industry through multiple internships. At Cradlepoint, I streamlined and debugged tools for monitoring cloud infrastructure. At Bracket Computing (since acquired by VMWare), I improved the cloud management UI and implemented an active API documentation feature that was positively received by customers.
