Biography: Madhur was born and raised in Lucknow, India. He received his undergraduate degree (2007-11) in Electronics and Communication Engineering from JUET, Guna, India. He moved to United States to pursue Master of Engineering (2011-12) in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Cornell University, where he worked with Prof. Sheila Hemami on ranking the video frames for priority streaming. He stayed at Cornell for his MS/PhD (2014-18) in Biomedical Engineering, where he worked with Prof. Jack Freed on developing computational methods to improve signal resolution in Electron Spin Resonance (ESR) spectroscopy for enabling biological studies at low sample concentrations. After a brief post-doc (2018-19) at ACERT, Madhur joined as an Assistant Research Professor (beginning July 1, 2019) in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Cornell University. He is also an associate member of ACERT.

Research Interests: Madhur is passionate about signal processing and is harnessing his expertise to solve problems in life sciences, physical sciences and engineering. He develops advanced computational methods for spectroscopy, imaging, and energy systems applications. He is leading the Signal Science Lab to develop and commercialize innovations for benefiting society and creating economic value.

Hobbies: Other side of Madhur’s life is enriched by cooking different recipes, binging on audio books, reading books late night, visiting museums and national parks, and taking road trips. He is particularly addicted to a good sense of humor.

Honors and Awards: Madhur has received many academic and service awards in his career; however, he has particular soft spot for the “Best Style” award he received from the International Students’ Union in 2018.
