Gowtham Atluri, PhD

Assistant Professor, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computing Systems


Gowtham Atluri received his B.Tech in Computer Science and Engineering from Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Hyderabad, India in 2004. He earned his M.Tech. in Computer Science & Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee in 2007. Gowtham received his PhD in 2014 from the University of Minnesota under the guidance of his advisor,  Prof. Vipin Kumar. He also received a MnDRIVE Brain Conditions post-doctoral fellowship for the duration of 2014-2015. Additionally, Gowtham's postdoctoral research was partly funded by a two-year grant from NASA in which he was a Co-PI.
