Abhishek Khanna completed his B.Tech and Masters in Electrical Engineering from IIT Bombay in Mumbai, India. Since 2017 he has been a PhD student at Notre Dame focused on experimental demonstrations of analog computing with non-CMOS hardware, along with device fabrication and characterization of complex correlated oxides. He is currently working towards creating coupled phase-transition nano-oscillator based systems to solve combinatorial optimization problems. He has also demonstrated ferroelectric FET based ternary content addressable memory arrays, as well as developed high temperature Lanthanum Cobaltite based vertical selectors for emerging crossbar memories. He has previously been a Visiting Research Scholar to IBM Research, Zurich and has won the Best Poster Award at IEEE/CAS AI Compute Symposium 2019 held at IBM T.J. Watson Research Lab, New York.
