I am Sourya Basu, currently a third year graduate student in the department of Electrical & Computer Enginerring at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I am really fortunate to be advised by Prof. Lav Varshney. I received my B.Tech in Electrical Engineering, with a minor in Artificial Intelligence in June, 2017 from IIT Kanpur. I spent the summer of 2016 at Information and Intelligence Group, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign working with Prof. Lav Varshney on compression of graphical structures.
